Floor coating products for facility safety initiatives!
Safety is a major priority for facility managers and business owners. Maintaining a safe work environment is crucial for a business’s success. Accidents and employee injuries can be costly due to loss of productivity and increased insurance premiums.
The facility floor is one area that should be considered when implementing a safety program. There are several types of epoxy coatings and concrete repair products that can be utilized to help with safety initiatives in industrial/commercial settings.
Coatings in Safety Colors: Many epoxy/urethane coatings are available in bright, safety colors. These coatings can be used to mark out traffic lines or emergency exit routes, indicate hazardous areas, or designate loading and work areas. Coatings are durable and long lasting, making them a great choice for safety markings. Stencils can also be used for painting word, symbols, or numbers.
Many roof coatings are also available in safety colors, allowing safety lines to be marked around roof perimeters, sky lights, roof hatch openings, and other areas where care and safety must be exercised.
Slip Resistant Coatings: Slips and falls are of great concern in most facilities. Often times, slip resistant flooring is required in commercial and industrial settings because of the high risk of injury related to falls caused by slippery surfaces. Many epoxy/urethane floor coating systems can be made more slip resistant by adding an aggregate. Different aggregates and broadcast techniques allows for a variety of finish types from mild to coarse textures. Epoxy floor systems are extremely durable, easy to clean, and some systems offer a more decorative surface or added chemical resistance.
Concrete Repair Products/Floor Maintenance: Damaged concrete can be more than just unattractive, holes and cracks in the facility floor can cause trip and fall hazards leading to serious injuries. Additionally, deteriorated concrete can cause damages to fork trucks, which may lead to accidents, as well as extra expenses in equipment repairs. Repairing and maintaining the floor is important to help eliminate these hazards. Many concrete repair products are available, such as epoxy mortar patch kits or epoxy crack fillers and joint sealants. Routine floor maintenance is an important step to maintain a safe working environment.
