Since using the “Watch Your Step” tape in our plant, we have had fewer accidents from slips and falls. We feel confident knowing we are in compliance with OSHA’s safety standards.
Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
As an employer or business owner, safety among the workplace is a serious concern. Most people have fallen or slipped at one time or another and they usually result in only a few bruises or scrapes but in the work environment, slips, falls and trips can result in sizable lawsuits and employee compensation due to disabling injuries or even death. OSHA has instituted standards addressing walking/working for the general industry for stairways, openings, portable and fixed ladders and scaffolding to name a few. More information about OSHA’s standards can be viewed at http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/walkingworkingsurfaces/index.html. Creative Safety Supply is a leading supplier of safety products with very strong concerns about safety in the work environment. Creative Safety Supply is now offering an anti slip tape with the text “Watch Your Step” with hazard marks repeated on the whole tape. This tape meets or exceeds OSHA 1910.24 and 1910.26 standards.
The anti slip tape is one solution that a business can incorporate into their facility for preventing unwanted accidents from flipping or falling. It is not only for the obvious, stairways, but the tape can also mark aisles, passageways and uneven surfaces. The heavy-duty highly visible tape will offer visual warning of a slip and fall hazard while offering the same aggressive premium grit found on other Gator Grip products. A business owner commented, “Since using the “Watch Your Step” tape in our plant, we have had fewer accidents from slips and falls. We feel confident knowing we are in compliance with OSHA’s safety standards.”
The surface of the tape is an aggressive mineral abrasive compound on a thick PVC liner. The tape will adhere to most any clean, dry surface with an acrylic adhesive system that is long lasting and easy to apply without any additional applicator. The tape can be applied in both indoor and outdoor environments due to it being resistant to water, chemicals and oils.
