SLIP & FALL PROBLEMS IN INDUSTRIAL LOCATIONS
Improvements in worker training, increased awareness, and the application of newer and better safety technology has made the average industrial workplace safer in recent years. However, preventable workplace injuries still occur at an alarming rate.

Slips, trips and falls are a multi-billion dollar commercial expense and, according to the Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, account for three of the top ten sources of workers’ compensation costs.
Slip and fall hazards present themselves in a variety of different workplace environments: exterior stairs and walkways, ramps, maintenance areas, product washing stations, areas surrounding sinks and water fountains, product fabrication areas, machine tool areas, and spray booths.
THE HANDI-TREADS® SOLUTION
Handi-Treads Aluminum Treads and stair nosings provide the ideal cost-effective solution to slip and fall hazards. Their unique rust-proof aluminum design features raised traction bumps that provide extra grip support on high-risk slip and fall surfaces. Industrial workplaces will often use a grit tape or grit paint to prevent slip and fall injuries, but these products wear out after prolonged use. Handi-Treads are durable and manufactured to last for years without the need for replacement.
Our treads can be easily installed on virtually any industrial surface, such as on a concrete shop floor in front of machinery, and stand up to the chemicals and cleaning supplies often used in these environments. They will keep your workers on their feet, guaranteed.
