5 Reasons Why Non-Slip Flooring Is a Must For Your Workplace

Your commercial flooring choice affects the look of your business and the safety of your employees. Even in what feels like a safe environment, slips and falls can occur, causing serious injuries. In our experience, non-slip flooring is the best for work environments. Not convinced? Here are five reasons why non-slip flooring is a must for your workplace.

It Minimises Slippage When Moving Around

Slips and falls account for 19% of all workplace injuries in the UK. One of the main causes of these accidents is slippery floors, so if you still have glossy polished floor tiles in your workplace, consider switching to non-slip flooring.

The health and social care industry, manufacturing factories, schools, sports centres, gyms and commercial kitchens would really benefit from non-slip flooring, given their high footfall, high activity rate, and high risk of injury. There are different types of non-slip flooring to choose from, including non-slip floor tiles, non-slip vinyl flooring and non-slip resin flooring.

Reduction of Expenditures For Work Accidents

As an employer, it is your responsibility to provide a safe work environment for your employees. Although you may not realise it, the type of flooring you choose for your workplace affects the welfare of your employees. Non-slip flooring is an excellent choice for the workplace as it prevents slippage when moving around. It also helps reduce workplace accidents and injuries, saving your company a ton of money that would otherwise be used to compensate workers and pay litigation fees.

Decrease In Damage Caused By Pollutants

Dry or wet pollutants, such as dust, flour, oil, water, etc., create another layer on the surface that prevents the foot from having direct contact with the ground. Fortunately, non-slip floors have compounds that reduce the slipperiness of these pollutants, allowing the human footprint to maintain direct contact with the ground at all times. This helps reduce slips and falls, especially in the kitchen and gym areas.

Durability

Commercial non-slip vinyl flooring is a worthwhile investment for your business. Since vinyl is a water-resistant material, cleaning and maintaining your floors should be pretty easy. You can mop your floors using water and detergent without any fear. These floors are also resistant to falls from heavy machinery and heavy traffic, which means that they will serve you for many years to come.

A Wide Variety of Design Choices

Non-slip vinyl flooring comes in a variety of colours and patterns to match whatever aesthetic you want for your workplace. You can design your floors in natural stone, wood, or ceramic tile and select a unique texture to go with them.
