Benefits of Non-Slip Flooring in Your Business

Slips, trips and accidents are something every business wants to avoid, and a non-slip flooring surface is a great way to stop accidents before they happen. Whether you run a busy kitchen or a warehouse with trucks coming and going all day, there are plenty of benefits to using non-slip flooring in your business.


Benefits of Non-Slip Flooring


  1. Installing non-slip flooring can assist business owners, management and employees with meeting OH & S compliance and safety requirements, as it helps to protect those within your business from slipping and falling while on your premises.
  2. Non-slip flooring ensures that staff, visitors and clients to your business are safe when working around your business. Trucks can make concrete flooring slippery when it’s raining outside while the constant washing of dishes and pans can make a kitchen floor slippery to work on. Less possibilities to slip means less possibility of injury.
  3. If you are resurfacing your floorings in the workplace, you have the option and control to choose the coating. You can keep your concrete floors for example, but add an anti-slip surface. This blends in with your existing building and provides that extra level of safety without needing to rip up all your floor.
  4. There’s no need to interrupt your workday when having a non-slip coating installed. This job can either be done at night or done during business hours with minimal disruption. The coating is relatively quick to apply and dries quite quickly which means you can be back working without a big delay.
  5. Installing non-slip surfaces can increase the productivity of your team. If your employees are worried about slipping or falling when walking on certain surfaces it can lower their productivity as it takes longer to get a job done. Non-slip flooring allows for the job to be done safely, at a quicker pace and therefore boosting productivity levels, whether it be from your office staff or the team on the floor in your warehouse.
  6. One of the biggest benefits of non-slip flooring is that it is cost-effective in the long run. Not only will it cut down on potential injury claims, but it can save you in maintenance costs, reduce your overtime costs and help promote your business as a safe place to work.
  7. Non-slip flooring can also be healthier than flooring without a slip-resistant coating. The coating that is used helps to protect against the build-up of bacteria on your floor surfaces, which in turn can prevent common illnesses amongst your staff. Less bacteria and illness means less days taken off work for illness, which results in a more productive and healthy workplace. This also means that applying a non-slip coating to your commercial kitchen flooring can help inhibit the growth of bacteria in your kitchen.
  8. Non-slip flooring in the workplace can also assist in making the flooring hard wearing and long lasting. When epoxy resin is applied directly over the floor, is it chemical resistant, weather resistant and abrasion resistant. The added durability makes the flooring suitable for a range of workplaces including warehouses, shopping centres, offices, medical centres and other public places.


If you are considering re-doing the flooring in your business, it is best to keep one thing in mind – “resilience and versatility should be prioritised before aesthetics”. Essentially – ensuring your flooring is safe to work on by using non-slip flooring is more important than worrying about whether it matches the wall colour or the doors.
