The majority of work accidents still occur on the floor. Stepping hazards and slipping are the usual hazards here. Therefore, proper hazard analysis and accident prevention on the floor are all the more important.
Accidents caused by tripping, slipping and falling, known as SRS accidents, account for about 25% of workplace accidents globally. The causes of accidents are mostly damp, dirty and slippery floor surfaces. However, in many factories, dirt and moisture cannot be avoided and slip-resistant solutions are being sought that can be applied retrospectively.
Commonwealth Serum Laboratories (CSL) was founded in Australia in 1916 and employs 27,000 employees worldwide. It is a leading global biotech company that develops and supplies innovative biotherapies and influenza vaccines.
The entrances and entrances to the company's headquarters are fitted with slate tiles and ceramic tiles. To prevent slip and fall accidents and meet national workplace safety standards, it is important that the walkways achieve a P4 slip resistance rating from the Australian Standard (AS 4663). This slip resistance standard is not achieved with acid treatments, for example. GriP anti-slip safety coatings, on the other hand, achieve slip resistance class P4 - P5 (R11-R12). The tiles were therefore coated with SWISSGriP and employees and guests can walk on the company's walkways without slipping.
