According to Grip Guard Non Slip , many property owners mistakenly believe that placing a slippery floor sign in areas that become slippery when wet offers protection from litigation. Unfortunately, these signs simply indicate that the business is aware that their floors become slippery when wet but have not taken obligatory steps to eliminate the danger.
Floors that do not have adequate non-slip properties leave businesses vulnerable to the financial impacts of being sued. Lack of knowledge is not an excuse for breaching safety laws.
Instead of highlighting the lack of compliance to health and safety guidelines, property owners need to address their floor surfaces to ensure they represent a safe environment for employees, visitors and the general public. Grip Guard Non Slip floor treatment is an ideal tool for eliminating slippery floor issues. Grip Guard Non Slip operators offer regular testing of floor surfaces to ensure that the co-efficient of friction (degree of slip resistance) is at a safe level.
This testing, carried out with an ASM slip meter provides the security that comes with knowing that floor safety issues have been addressed and are being maintained. When problem floor surfaces are detected, Grip Guard Non Slip operators provide the correct non slip treatment for the particular surface as well as professional advice to ensure that the appropriate co-efficient of friction is reached so that a non slip floor surface is maintained.
Grip Guard Non Slip treatments are available throughout Australia and New Zealand including NSW (Sydney), QLD (Brisbane), TAS (Launceston), VIC (Melbourne), SA (Adelaide), WA (Perth), Auckland, as well as regional areas throughout the country.
