Supplier: Grip Guard Non-Slip Floor Safety By: Patricia Simmons
22 February, 2010

Grip Guard supplies and installs a full range of anti-slip and non-slip treatments designed to maximise workplace safety.

Occupational health and safety is constantly in the news. Workplace safety issues must be reviewed and safety intiatives implemented if workplace accidents are to be reduced.

Grip Guard has recently been asked to help a number of manufacturers to meet Australian Standards and workplace safety regulations. 

Every employer has a 'duty of care' to their employees as well as guests who access the work areas. Workplace assessments allow those responsible to obtain advice and service aimed at reducing the risk factors in the workplace.

Grip Guard specifically addresses the area of floor safety and visits workplaces to measure the slip resistance of floors and stairs and identify areas of concern so that management can address floor safety issues before accidents happen.

Stone-based floors such as ceramic, concrete, marble, granite, exposed aggregate, porcelain or terrazzo can benefit from Grip Guard antislip floor safety treatment. This treatment can dramatically increase the slip resistance of stone-based floors to make them safer for pedestrians. The anti-slip treatment is a long term solution for floors that become slippery when wet.

Grip Guard also has a full range of antislip stair nosings which increase the slip resistance of the leading edge of the stair tread allowing management to meet stringent Australian Standards with regards to stair safety. The anti-slip stair nosings are available in a wide range of profiles, colours and anti-slip properties. The nosings are a heavy duty, long lasting stair safety solution.

For areas which have constant exposure to water or other liquids, Grip Guard anti-slip marine grade safety flooring creates excellent slip resistance. Its unique diamond shaped nodules channel water away from the foot and its textures increases slip resistance.

Grip Guard operators attend workplaces to carry out floor safety assessments and offer advice regarding the most practical, economical and effective anti-slip floor safety solutions.

Grip Guard representatives are available throughout Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin as well as selected regional areas and New Zealand.
