Why Non Slip Floor Treatment Is Critical For Business
Total Articles: 11
The owners or occupiers of commercial premises in Australia are legally bound to ensure that staff and visitors are kept safe. This includes taking reasonable steps to reduce the potential for a slip fall accident.
Slips and falls on privately owned or commercial premises which are proved to be caused by or contributed to by the negligence of the owner or occupier can result in a compensation claim for any personal injury sustained by an employee or visitor, even after a Non Slip Floor Treatment has been applied it must meet Australian Standards and or “Duty of Care” guidelines.
The posting of temporary “slippery when wet” signage may not be deemed to be a sufficient action to Establish a “duty of care compliance”. Indeed apart from the use of these signs immediately after mopping, the signs themselves may be the example of non-compliance. Typically used on rainy days in access areas to shopping centres and commercial premises these signs actively demonstrate a Neglection of these responsibilities. These signs also do not meet the hazard warning requirements for the visually impaired, and may also be considered a tripping hazard.
In many cases the owner or occupier of defective premises to which the public visit will have ‘public liability’ insurance where the insurance company indemnifies the owner or occupier of premises for damages paid to the claimant. With today’s lawyers and Solicitors offering “no win no cost” representation in court, business will face an ever increasing risk of exposure to claims of this nature. Consequentially most insurance companies will ensure prior to premium renewal that minimum “duty of care” compliance has been met and Anti Slip Floor Treatment has been used and its effectiveness can be quantified in court.
In new construction or major renovation compliance to the Australian Standard for pedestrian surfaces is mandatory, and we often see authorities refuse a Certificate of Occupancy until these standards have been met.
