Public entrances and reception areas are potentially the most dangerous environments for slips in wet weather conditions due to the surface being primarily tiles, terrazzo or marble etc.
JSE Contract Services can treat these surfaces to reduce the risk of slips and help the building owners comply with their duty of care.
Many buildings have mats or mat wells fitted, but most of these are not adequate enough to deal with the amount of water being transferred in from the outside in inclement weather.
Signs are no longer adequate enough protection to prevent slipping and too often these are used instead of corrective action being taken.
Areas treated include:
- Office reception areas
- Main entrances
- Fire escapes
