Getting to grips with anti-slip paint for accident prevention

A recent report by RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) suggested that slips, trips and falls are still the most common non-fatal injuries to employees within the workplace (31%). Highlighting the importance of investing in appropriate prevention. It was also uncovered by The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), “that many slip accidents happen at building entrances as people entering the building walk in rainwater”. This report showcases the possibility of an incident in any workplace, from manufacturing and production to the traditional office environment.

With Health & Safety regulations being a top priority for many business owners, it is not a question of “why use anti-slip paint?” but rather “which is right for my business?”. Rizistal makes this decision simple, offering a range of hard-wearing and cost-effective epoxy paints.

Alex Holdway, Product Manager for Rizistal said “Our anti-slip coatings not only improve work environment safety, but they are also extremely durable. We are proud to offer an extensive range of high quality and long lasting products.”

He adds: “Each of Rizistal’s products has been manufactured to ISO 9001:2008 Standards. We are proud of our heritage and have over 50 years of industry specific experience in this field.”
Rizistal’s easy to apply range of anti-slip epoxy paints come in 4 variants from Standard Anti-slip Gloss Epoxy to Fast Cure, Cold Cure and Epoxy Paint for Asphalt & Tarmac. These products are easy to apply, solvent-free and come in a range of colours.

The high performing Rizistal EC228 gloss floor coating is a market leader due to its specially designed formulation and hard aluminium oxide aggregate. EC228 provides even coverage on masonry, ceramic and concrete floors. It comes in nine colours and can be walked over within 8 to 10 hours.

Some cold conditions demand more which is why Rizistal’s EC258 Cold Cure is here to provide anti-slip protection underfoot for temperatures in the region of 0-10*C. This coating is great for walk-in fridges where the chances of slips and trips are increased.

There is also a unique Rizistal EC358 Epoxy Paint for Asphalt & Tarmac. This fast-curing and extremely durable coating is suitable for use on tarmac, asphalt, concrete, wood and previously painted floor areas.
