New Forest Commercial Services
Spillage of water and inclement weather was set to become a potential cause of slip injuries in many public sites throughout the New Forest District. So finding a solution to the problem was high on the Council’s list.
Clive Morey, Building & Cleaning Services Manager at New Forest District Council Commercial Services (NFDC) department, was responsible for dealing with the problem.
‘Following an impressive demonstration of No Skidding products to changing room floors at our works depot, we decided to install No Skidding Anti Slip Treatment in one of the many public conveniences’, explained Clive, ‘and on the day, treatment time on the tiles was only 30 minutes which meant that the each toilet area was only out of use for about 40 minutes, which was a great result.’
The ease of application and improvement in slip resistance was immediate and there are now plans to treat other public conveniences in the area. The Commercial Services department is also looking at No Skidding Products as a solution to other potential floor safety issues throughout many of the other public properties in the district.
