Signs You Need New Industrial Flooring

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) states that each year more than two million workplace injuries are directly linked to floors and flooring materials.

Slips and falls are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims. With these statistics in mind, keeping your floors safe for employees is vital. Trip hazards, cracking floors and even potholes are a result of failed epoxy solutions. “Don’t wait until these obvious signs of distress show up on your floor to do something about it,” says Amy Manghelli, President of Surface Solutions, Inc. “Our seamless urethane concrete system is the perfect solution for all types of floors.”

OSHA Compliant and FDA Approved

If you are a member of the food and beverage industry, you understand the punishment a commercial floor is subjected to daily. Water, fats, oils and other liquids damage and stain them. The floors become slick and dangerous. They are a liability companies can avoid by using the right type of flooring. “Surface Solutions’ slip resistant flooring is OSHA-compliant,” Amy says. “The top coat contains coarse particles. It eliminates sliding and skidding, helping to make floors safer.”

Food and beverage facilities must have floors that are approved by the FDA. Because a urethane concrete system is non-porous, there is nowhere for bacteria, listeria and salmonella to hide. “We carry a full line of USDA- and FDA-approved flooring options,” Amy adds. “Surface Solution is also a Flowcrete STAR Contractor, which means we have specially trained technicians who are experts in seamless resin flooring installations.”
