Why you need it

Recent insurance studies in the food industry, an analysis of over 225,000 worker compensation claims, revealed that slip/fall accidents accounted for over 40% of dollar claims paid out. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) passed by Congress in July 1992 Title III notes: For all businesses open to the public, ADA and ATBCB recommends flooring and walkways have a coefficient of friction level .60 or above .80 for ramps. There are severe penalties for failure to comply and tax benefits for those business taking steps to comply. OSHA sets many requirements for safe floors, walkways and ramps under 29 CFR-1910 referring to providing floors of anti-slip surfaces or maintaining surfaces in non-slip condition.

Accepted Industry Standards
