According to the National Safety Council there are 9 million disabling slip/fall injuries every year, that's 25,000 eachday. This accounts for 95 million lost workdays per year. The expense amounts to about 3.5 million dollars per hour every day of the year. Human suffering, time lost, escalating Workman's Compensation and liability insurance, as well as lawyer's fees has prompted the federal government to address this tremendous problem.
Recently enacted federal legislation provides the potential for enormous fines for businesses with injuries due to slip and fall accidents.
SlipGrip® reduces the risk and danger of slips and falls, the resulting potential for injury, lawsuits, litigation costs, employee days lost, and fatal falls in bathrooms.
SlipGrip® can be used on almost all hard surfaces, such as ceramic tile, glazed brick, marble, polished stone, terrazzo, river rock, concrete, quarry tile, slate, porcelain and enamel bathtubs & showers.
How is this possible?
Slipgrip is not a coating that can wear off, but a process that creates a tread design on the mineral surface itself without losing the look or feel of your flooring or the comfort of bathing. Slipgrip will not discolor or change the look of your floor, tile, tub or shower.Slipgrip is quick (within 2 minutes) and easy to apply to your bathtub or shower. SlipGrip® comes with a two-year warranty on your floors.
The Law says, you need SlipGrip®
The Americans with Disabilities Act provides that all businesses must maintain their floors in slip proof condition. Failure to comply results in HUGE fines, higher commercial insurance and Workman's Compensation, plus needless human suffering. Businesses are eligible for tax credits and tax deductions when SlipGrip® is applied.
