The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends that walking surfaces in public areas have a SCOF of 0.50 or above in all conditions. OSHA has set forth a plan to increase its inspections at medical and retirement facilities this year in an effort to reduce slip and fall accidents in the workplace. They are also meeting with Congress to make the SCOF guideline of 0.50 into a RULE that all businesses must adhere to. Contact us if you need to book a COF testing for your surfaces.
The Americans with Disabilities Act calls for a SCOF of 0.60 for flat surfaces and a 0.80 for ramps. Meeting ADA guidelines may qualify an organization for a tax credit of up to $5,000 (please consult your tax professional) and many organizations also managed to reduce insurance rates. Do your floors meet ADA and OSHA guidelines? If not, please contact us for a free floor consultation so we can show you how our treatment will bring your “slippery” floors into compliance!
There are very few organizations, facilities, agencies and businesses that have no need to worry about the above, if any. Below is an overview of some of our most common clients.
Typical areas of treatment are the pool area, walkways, stairs and steps, lobby and lobby bathrooms, reception, breakfast and other common areas and of course guest room (bathroom) floors and tubs. Contact us for a free quote for treatment of any or all of the mentioned areas.
