The age-old comedy sketch of a person slipping on a banana peel might still get a chuckle, but it has no place in real life. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that most general industry accidents involve slips, trips and falls. In 2013, the National Safety Council reported that workplace injury cases due to falls “from the same level” cost over seven billion dollars! Clearly, slips and falls – especially on a concrete floor – are not something to laugh at.
When you have an area in your home, business, or warehouse that is prone to be wet, greasy, oily or slick, it’s even more important to apply preventive measures. West Coast Epoxy offers an anti-slip finish for concrete floors that often face slippery issues like these:
- Professional garages
- Professional kitchens
- Laundry rooms
- Outdoor/indoor inclines
- Pool areas
- Breweries and wineries
- Locker room showers
An anti-slip finish significantly reduces the risk of slips or falls by providing a stronger grip for things like shoes and tires, even on a slope or in wet conditions. Depending on your circumstances, West Coast Epoxy offers different grades of texture, and you can get a better idea of these grades from our samples.
Of course, certain regulations might come into play, conditional on your city or county. We make sure that all local regulations are researched, met and adhered to when applying any coating to your concrete floor. Call us today or schedule a free consultation online. Let West Coast Epoxy help you keep a good grip on your concrete floor in Sacramento, Northern California, and beyond!
