FloorTraction Treats Stone Based Floors for Slip and Fall Prevention.

OUR STORY

Begins in the Midwest, at a mall, on a wet and stormy day before the age of the internet. There, a conscientious security guard noticed some shoppers quickly glance back at a spot in the floor which indicated a potential hazard. Aware of OSHA law 29 CFR 1910.22(a)(2) and 29 CFR 1910.145(c)(2), the security guard placed caution signs and alerted mall management to the risk. The mall management; not as concerned about bonuses or losing their job for doing the right thing, often the case today; immediately called a floor consulting company. With a decision made on the spot, no pun intended, FloorTraction’s anti-slip solution was applied and within a few hours the hazard was corrected with no inconvenience displayed by shoppers. (Hard to believe, we know, but there were times before the internet where employees and shoppers were considered assets, and their voices were heard and due credit was given where deserved.)

The owners, management and staff of FloorTraction continue with the same focus today, with commitment to our customers and partners. Done right the first time, with little to no inconvenience.

FloorTraction is an industry leader in environmentally friendly slip resistant floor applications. We help you, your customers, and your employees avoid dangerous slips and falls caused by floors exposed to water, moisture, or just about any kind of liquid.
