Floors That Might Just Save You
Workplace safety is huge area of focus for inspectors these days, more so than ever before in history and as a business operator or owner this can become one of those areas, ‘no matter how important’ that becomes a bit of a pest. Demands to be met left, right and centre and a production line to run at the same time, the production line being the most important to you, sometimes we have less time to spend on safety.
Slips and trips happen every day, regardless of which industry you are in and cause a list of problems as long as your arm, down time when the accident happens, potential time off to recover, cost of replacing the worker in the meantime or the embarrassment of having to smooth things over with a customer or a visitor, hoping that they don’t seek to claim for negligence. There are situations whereby this has happened months after the incident causing complete surprise and a headache that nobody wants.
There are some things you can do to reduce the chances of accidents and it often involves a little investment at the off-set but will pay for itself over time, especially if it prevents a workplace injury. If you haven’t done already, it would be worth spending some time, or get one of your team to look into some safety features that could enhance the look and feel of your work space too.
As an example, warehouse epoxy services in Adelaide are proving new flooring solutions for warehouses which offer a completely new look, you can choose in fact, so it could be something really special, but the most important part is that the floors are slip resistant, safety taken care of.
