Floors safety in buildings needs to be one of the most frequently pursued aspects of building safety, as the most common type of accident in a building involves someone slipping, tripping, or falling. Even worse, these frequent accidents can sometimes lead to painstaking lawsuits that can cost a company or building owner. With so many scenarios that can lead to slipping, tripping, and falling – wet floor, floor cleaning, liquids, condensation, busy foot traffic, items left on the floor, dark hallways, stairwells and corridors – it is paramount that a company and building owner take the necessary safety precautions to limit, and possibly even completely prevent any accidents from happening.
One of the best ways to ensure floor safety throughout your building is through the implementation of industrial tapes, specifically grip tape. What is grip tape? Simply ask any skateboarding aficionado how wonderful and warranted grip tape is. Grip tape is what nearly all skateboarders, especially those at the professional level, use for traction on their boards. This type of industrial tape helps them keep their footing on the board while performing crazy stunts. If grip tape can help skateboarders with their footing while performing jumps, flips, and aerial stunts, imagine how beneficial it can be installed throughout your building for people who will be walking or treading swiftly (perhaps even running in the event of an evacuation procedure)?
