How do you help prevent slips on stairs, stairwells, landings, platforms, ramps, walkways, and ladders? – Each year thousands of people are reported to suffer easily preventable injuries from a slip, trip, stumble, tumble or fall, that causes simple medically treated cuts, bruises, fractures, dislocations or in the worst case, a fatality. Almost one quarter of all serious insurance claims in Australia were from slips, trips, stumbles, tumbles or falls, and over a period of 12 years, 386 workers died.
Many incidents could have been prevented!
Nearly 60% of these preventable incidents were caused by environmental factors such as slippery surfaces after a fluid spill or on a worn stair, walkway, ramp, ladder or landing. Poorly designed and maintained pedestrian thoroughfares, unsuitable lighting, or inappropriately stored materials were also reported to contribute to many of the injuries sustained.
Advance Anti-Slip Surfaces produces a wide range of standard size non-slip stair nosing, ladder rung covers and safeplate products as well as custom sizes being available, which are made to order, to help prevent accidents from occurring.
Advance Anti-Slip manufacturers a range of metal backed class one non-slip nosings designed for application in a wide variety of situations in potentially slippery and hazardous areas. The three different types of turn down designs and metal backing provide a durable, resilient and extremely hard-wearing product.
Safeplates made by Advance Anti-Slip are a class one flat metal backed product that is able to suit any floor type, ramp, platform, walkway, gantry or landing. Just like our class one stair nosings, they are robust, dependable, provide excellent traction and have a long effective life.
