Safety Treads & Decking

“Keep a steady foothold with Action Handling” All our safety treads & decking equipment is designed to comply with Health & Safety regulations


For British Waterways

A leading sub-contractor for British Waterways had encountered a steady decline in productivity and attendance onsite due to an increase in employee accidents. Following an investigation, it was clear that unsafe working conditions were to blame and Action Handling was engaged to supply a large quantity of safety tread and decking to counter the slippery surfaces.

Safety of personnel in environments where there are slippery surfaces is absolutely vital. When a sub-contractor of British Waterways noticed an increase in injuries and sick-leave at one particular site, they decided to investigate. The conclusion of this was that a large number of the workforce had slipped on unsecured flooring and something had to be done immediately to ensure that Health & Safety regulations were being adhered to.

The sub-contractor's first port of call was Action Handling, to arrange a meeting and discuss any improvements that could be made. A large quantity of safety tread & decking equipment was supplied and installed within 3 working days. An overview of the kit that we supplied is detailed below.

Slipgrip gives a complete covering of the entire stair tread or stairwell landing and is extremely easy to install. The fibreglass profile is covered with a very hard wearing grit non-slip laminate.
