MagicGRIP provides clients with a warranty which documents the slip resistance of the floor surface. We test the surface both prior and following MagicGRIP process. This will specify how your specific slip issue has been addressed.
MagicGRIP consultants will attend your premises and measure the co-efficient of friction (degree of slip resistance) of your floors with an ASM slip meter. This slip meter reading (indicative of the Australian Standards) will allow us to provide you with advice regarding the pedestrian safety of you floor surface.
Should you need any further certification we can provide accredited testing at your request.
The potential for serious injury from slips, trips and falls cannot be overestimated. Such incidents can have critical consequences and long-term effects. Workers’ compensation insurance covers only a small proportion of the costs. It does not account for indirect costs, such as:
• the time to process and manage the injury
• increased workloads for other staff to perform the injured person’s work
• loss of expertise and necessary skills and additional training for replacement staff
• decreased productivity
• the human aspect of pain and suffering.
Effective strategies to make a safety floor system are usually simple, inexpensive and lead to both immediate and long-term benefits, increased productivity and reduced compensation costs. Commonwealth workers’ compensation statistics in the five financial years from 1995 through to 2001 indicate that slip and falls accounted for 18% of all claims, totalling over $48 million in direct costs to Commonwealth employers. Approximately 1 in every 100 Commonwealth employees is injured as a result of a slip, trip or fall. Slips, trips and falls are the second highest category of injury in terms of cost and the number of incidents each year. MagicGRIP is the safety floor system for your OH&S needs.
