For years, the terrazzo floor in the foyer at Largo Middle School became slippery on rainy and humid days..... This caused danger to the students and faculty so we applied our slip resistant chemicals.
Since then, and that was over 12 years ago, the floor is still slip resistant. The area maintenance supervisor for the Pinellas County Schools from St. Petersburg to Clearwater has had the product used in kitchens, locker rooms, showers and restrooms.
It's amazing.... he says, It works better when it is wet than when it is dry!
Busch Gardens used the product in the bathrooms near the attraction's water rides. The park's safety and risk manager had this to say....
IT REALLY WORKED!!
The owner and manager of Sea Critters Cafe in St. Pete Beach said that he had had a couple of falls in the restaurant before he decided to have the slip-resistant treatment applied to the tile floors. After five years, he could not think of one incident since then.
Now, even when the tile is wet, it is not slippery!
Back in 1994 Ryan's Family of Steak houses of Florida, Inc. had this to say...
We have seen a remarkable decrease I believe this improvement to our restaurants has greatly improved the safety of our employees and will result in significant savings from reduced workers' compensation claims. This is clearly an example of an investment with a measurable payback!
A few years back a coalition of business, government, safety and health professionals joined together in what they called "Project Safe Georgia" to offer that state low cost, effective ways to improve workplace safety and health in the restaurant industry. They suggested that one of the first places to begin is the elimination of slips, trips and falls. An evaluation of 230,000 workers compensation claims for the restaurant industry showed that these combined to make up the number one injury among restaurant employees. Slips, trips and falls accounted for 25 percent of injuries incurred and even 45 percent of dollars paid for workers compensation claims. BY ELIMINATION OF FALLS AND BACK INJURIES, THE RESTAURANT INDUSTRY COULD REDUCE ALMOST 70 PERCENT OF WORKERS COMPENSATION DOLLAR CLAIMS.
This group did a test on Atlanta area Waffle House restaurants. Our Slip Resistant Solutions Floor Treatment and Slip Resistant Hard Surface Cleaner Degreaser were used for five and one half months. They concluded as follows,
Slip Resistant Solutions Products were a positive and inexpensive method to help reduce slip and fall accidents.
Up until now, our company has done the floor treatments ourselves. Now we are making this floor treatment available to business owners and managers as well. The product was formulated in 1981. We have had a long history with the product and have continually improved our methods.
We have treated floors for many companies that you may know. Some of them are Winn Dixie Grocery, Disney, Busch Gardens, Pinellas County Schools, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, many car dealerships with tile floors, many high rise condos in Miami with marble foyers, and on and on.
