Floors’ safety attributes
How floors can help achieve a safer environment.
Flowcrete Australia has introduced a new campaign, called Get More From Floors, to show how floors can help achieve a safer environment. “Our Get More from Floors campaign shows how floors can play a major role in supporting good working environments,” Sean Tinsley, managing director of Flowcrete Australia, states. “From anti-slip surfaces, through to the use of lineage and demarcation zones to signpost people safely around a site, floors play a key role in the smooth and functional running of industrial areas.”
The company advocates an approach that includes anti-slip floor finishes and an adjustable profile to suit clients’ individual requirements. “The surface can be designed to meet the balance between slip resistance and cleanability to ensure a fit-for-purpose system is specified, suitable for either wet or dry processing areas,” Tinsley notes.
“Bright signage, demarcation and instructional patterns can also be incorporated at ground level to outline different zones, marking out walkways and aisles, loading back and stacking areas, and other areas exposed to potential danger,” he concludes.
