The Workplace (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 (Regulation 12) require floors to be suitable, in good condition and free from obstructions. Where a floor is likely to be subject to frequent contamination, people should still be able to walk on it without the risk of slipping.
According to the HSE ‘Kinds of Accident Statistics‘ published on 4th November, about half of all employer reported non-fatal injuries to employees in 2019/20 were accounted for by just two different accident kinds (similar to earlier years); slips trips or falls on same level accidents (29%) and handling, lifting or carrying accidents (19%).
Safety Flooring, which is often mistakenly referred to as non-slip flooring, is designed to reduce the risk of slipping in areas that are exposed to contaminants such as Grease, Oil, Shampoo and Water.
