Health & Safety Compliance

Ceramic basinsHealth and safety legislation is often confusing, open to interpretation or simply suffers from a lack of awareness; we help businesses like hotels ensure they stay on top of the biggest slip risk in any living space; the bath!

We developed our unique anti-slip coatings for baths to make them a safer thing to use for all our customers, but over time we realised the product had a huge potential to improve health and safety in hotels. Seeing hotels in the news caught out by failing to adequately cover slipping risks in the bathroom, we developed a service that is both practical and fully compliant with HSE recommendations and legal requirements as outlined below.

Risk assessments

Any commercial property must be risk assessed and any bathroom including a bath, shower or tiled floor should always raise a flag of concern over the potential for a serious slip and injury. Slipping injuries in bathrooms are extremely common and there are few ways to prevent them. To comply with the law, an anti-slip prevention should be found and integrated, checked for effectiveness in the long term and have those checks fully recorded each time.

Anti-slip prevention

Our permanent coatings are the ideal prevention product; a resin that cannot move around or be forgotten is fixed to the bath and packed with high friction aggregates, which makes it almost impossible to slip on. Once the coating is installed, you can feel confident that your guests will be safe standing in the bath even with shower gels, shampoos or bath oils making the enamel slippery.

Ensuring it stays effective

A crucial part of health and safety that many miss is that you have to make sure the preventative methods stay effective; over time even resin and aggregates can wear down to a smoother surface and bring back the risk of a slip. Leaving it to your cleaning staff to notice and report wear and tear only raises the possibilities of an accident occurring, so we provide a hotel bath anti-slip maintenance service periodically checking your baths and simply re-applying the resin formula when an older installation begins to wear down.

Do not get caught out by failing to comply with the regulations; good anti-slip coatings really do prevent injuries and accidents and maintaining them protects the health of your guests and business. Quickly and simply applied to current bath installations our resin formula is also a highly cost effective alternative to ripping out baths for models with grips pre-installed, that need replacing again just a year down the line.
