Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls
According to the 2018 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, same-level slips, trips and falls cost employers $13.5 billion in worker’s compensation costs. QuestMark can help customers identify areas where concrete or epoxy may be in need of patches or repairs. Areas to look for include any spalling, damaged joints, cracks or holes from heavy equipment, chemicals or normal wear and tear. Getting these areas repaired will provide a safer environment for employees and customers.
CNA, a leading provider of insurance solutions and risk management, also found that 50 percent of the sites surveyed failed to produce a dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) above the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) minimum of 0.42 (see Slip and Fall Study Report). QuestMark’s DiamondQuest polished concrete system is certified as a National Flooring Safety Institute (NFSI) High Traction Floor. We can also customize our other flooring solutions to include non-slip aggregate.
Safety Lines and Demarcation
Manufacturing and industrial facilities also face the possibility of injury near the equipment. Liberty Mutual attributed $9.4 billion in costs to injuries from objects or equipment. QuestMark can add line striping and areas of demarcation to your floor.
