No matter what business you run, health and safety is paramount. Health and safety regulations put the responsibility on employers to ensure that their site is safe for all users, whether they are employees, customers or members of the public. In the case of an accident, the employer has the responsibility to demonstrate that all reasonable steps had been taken to minimise risks.
Did you know that one of the most common causes of accident in workplaces in Britain is tripping? Many people do not realise that tripping can be just as common where there are small ridges or steps as with large flights of stairs.
Fortunately, at Safe Industrial we specialise in site security and facilities management. We have a range stair nosing UK businesses can rely on for enhanced safety. Our anti slip stair nosing and anti slip stair tread range is the simple way to reduce the chance of injury or accident and demonstrate that you have taken reasonable steps to maintain safety standards in your workplace. We have a variety of materials including GRP and aluminium stair treads.
We have a range of stair nosing and anti slip stair treads for you, but they all offer the same basic advantages – they highlight the edge of trip hazards like steps, and the reduce the risk of slipping. Firstly, the stair nosing marks clearly the edge of a step or edge. The bright colour of the nosing makes it hard to miss the edge of the step. Also, the straight line of the stair nosing means that any unevenness in old stone or concrete steps can be straightened out. Secondly, the rough surface of our grp stair treads and stair nosing means that there is little chance of slipping, even in wet weather.
