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 unsecure flooring and something had to be done immediately to ensure that health and 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 and decking equipment was supplied and installed within three working days.
