From nurseries and schools to cafeterias and restaurants, many businesses can benefit from safety flooring. Whether you’re concerned about spillages or you simply want to err on the side of caution in a building that experiences high volumes of foot traffic, safety flooring will undoubtedly give you peace of mind.
Slips, trips and falls are one of the most common causes of workplace injuries and with this in mind, safety flooring is undoubtedly a worthwhile investment. Still not convinced? Below, we explore just a few reasons why you may want to have safety flooring installed in your establishment.
As previously mentioned, slips are not uncommon in the workplace and no matter how careful we are, unfortunately, accidents do happen. However, safety flooring is so-named because it is covered with a slip resistant layer, reducing the likelihood of any trips, slips or falls at work. This is extremely important in rooms that see lots of spillages such as commercial kitchens and bathrooms as well as areas that experience high levels of foot traffic such as corridors and building entrances.
Another benefit of having safety flooring installed is that it’s relatively low-maintenance. The flooring is specifically designed to not absorb spillages and as a result, it’s extremely easy to clean. This also makes it a hygienic flooring option as it’s resistant to germs and bacteria, making it ideal for use in healthcare facilities.
Whilst there are different styles of safety flooring, it’s generally comfortable underfoot and is extremely durable, ensuring it stays comfortable for years to come. Although this may not necessarily be a priority, it’s always preferable to have a floor that’s both safe and comfortable to walk on.
First and foremost, it’s important for your safety flooring to be functional. However, we’d also like a floor that’s visually appealing and enhances the look of the workplace. Luckily, most companies will be able to lay flooring that complements your building’s decor and fits in seamlessly. There will likely be different styles and finishes available as well as a range of different colours to suit any and every commercial building.
