Concrete is a great flooring surface but it does have the disadvantage of being slippery, especially when it’s wet. However, this no longer has to be a problem with the many non slip surface options that are now available.
Did you know that slip and fall accidents are the second largest cause of accidents in the workplace? In Queensland alone they’re responsible for more than 13,000 injuries every year. An injury as a result of a slip, trip or fall costing Queensland businesses more than 256,000 lost work days and over $60 million in workers’ compensation payments.
In addition to workers’ compensation costs, there are financial, physical and emotional costs for the injured worker and their family. A workplace injury often affects injured workers’ well being by restricting their usual home and leisure activities.
Simple and cost effective measures can reduce the number and severity of these injuries. Most of these accidents are preventable with the installation of non slip flooring surface solutions.
Non slip concrete surfacing is about applying a new surface to concrete so that it is safer for people to use, whether it is wet or dry. You can apply the non slip coating to plain concrete or decorative concrete – it does not matter as the coating doesn’t actually affect the look of the concrete at all. There are different types of non slip coatings that you can choose from. Micro etching treatments, when applied, create millions of microscopic grooves and indents that provide slip resistance when the concrete is wet. Penetrating sealers are also great for concrete as they protect the concrete while creating a non slip coating. Polyurethane and epoxy coatings are yet another option that you can choose from to make your concrete non slip.
Anti slip concrete resurfacing needs to be done by professionals. This is so that the coating is applied thoroughly and has desired effect.
