A-1 Anti-Slip has been appointed by Grip Guard Floor Safety to provide a comprehensive range of Grip Guard Floor Safety solutions to Queensland businesses and property owners.

Business owners and property managers have a legal obligation to provide the necessary non-slip floor treatments to ensure that staff and visitors are safe from the risk of slip and fall accidents. The consequences of ignoring the relevant regulations are serious.

Reports of slip and fall accidents are regularly covered in the media and highlight the need for business and property owners to address their floor safety issues.

It is commonplace to see alarming headlines like slip-and-scald incident costs fast food restaurant and supermarket ordered to pay up for customers slip/fall injuries.

It is essential that floor surfaces are assessed for slip resistance and that necessary non-slip treatments are carried out to protect all employees and visitors and help property owners to avoid expensive litigation that can result from slip and fall injuries.

Keran Fletcher-Mathews of A-1 Anti-Slip (QLD) explains, ‘Many business or home owners are unaware that their properties represent a serious risk to employees and/or visitors. It is essential that floor surfaces are periodically tested to ensure that the slip resistance of the floor surface is adequate to protect all pedestrians who have access to these areas. A floor safety check is an essential tool for meeting OH&S obligations.’

Grip Guard Floor Safety Services include non-slip treatments for every floor surface as well as non-slip stair nosings and slip resistant tactile ground surface indicators (tactiles) for the visually impaired.

A-1 Anti-Slip provides Grip Guard Floor safety services and products throughout Queensland including Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton, McKay, Airlie Beach, the Whitsunday Islands and surrounding areas. A-1 Anti-Slip offers obligation free demonstrations and quotes.

Recently, A-1 Anti-Slip provided essential non-slip treatment to the pool area, foyer and stairwells at the Hayman Island Resort. These treatments raised the co-efficient of friction of the floor surface to reduce the risk of slip and fall injuries at the resort.
