With winter weather settling in, slips and falls become prevalent occurrences in the workplace. Without precautions being taken in high risk slip areas the result of an accident could cost your business in production downtime, sick leave and possibly violate the new Health and Safety Act.
51% of workplace accidents are caused by slips, trips and/or falls. Many of these accidents can be directly related to falls and slips. 60% of these accidents are due to inadequate work standards with a further 10% of these incidents involving a slip, trip or stumble leading to the incident itself.
Anti-slip tapes can provide an easy way to avoid unnecessary accidents in the workplace. With multiple colours available they can be applied to most surfaces and should be part of your workplace safety review.
Speak to your Snell Representative about whether anti slip tapes are right for your business’s high risk areas.
