Government Initiatives Ensure Success of Grip Guard Floor Safety Providers

The Australian government, in a focused attempt to eliminate the devastating effects of slip and fall injuries to the Australian workforce, have introduced a number of initiatives to reduce these injuries.

Just recently a national campaign aimed at reducing the number of slip, trip and manual task injuries sustained by hospital workers was implemented. This campaign focuses on helping non clinical workers in the health and community services industry to increase awareness of, and manage, slip, trip and manual task risks.

This is just one of the many government initiatives aimed at reducing the incidence of slip and fall injuries - Australia’s second largest workplace accident. Employers in Australia are almost certainly aware of their legal responsibility to provide a safe working environment for their employees.

For this reason, Grip Guard Non-Slip floor safety experts are in an enviable position to benefit by the OH&S legislation that compels business owners to have floor surfaces in the workplace that offer protection for their employees from the risks of slip and fall injuries.

Simply put, it is not an option, but rather a legal requirement that floor surfaces in the workplace are slip resistant. Grip Guard Non-Slip operators throughout Australia have the opportunity to help business owners to meet their OH&S obligations and reduce their risk of litigation for their failure to adhere to their obligations.

The directors of Grip Guard have been providing floor safety solutions to Australian businesses and homeowners since 1998. Their floor safety extends throughout Australia and overseas.
