Slip Safe Treatment

Ceramic tile is used everywhere because it is beautiful, lasts forever and is easy to maintain.  However, wet slippery tile is extremely dangerous and can even be fatal.  Slip and fall accidents have become the second major cause of death after motor vehicle accidents and they continue to be the leading cause of on-the-job disabilities and compensation claims.

SlipSafe Tile tile products are designed to help mitigate the risk of slip and fall accidents and resulting liability.  With more than a billion dollars a year being paid out in negligence suits due to slip and fall deaths and injuries.

SlipSafe Tile provides the sensible and inexpensive solution to government mandated slip and fall compliance standards.  The focus should be on prevention and not compensation.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip, and fall injury and over 17, 000 people die in the U.S. annually because of these injuries.  Slip, trip and fall injuries make up 15 percent of all job related injuries, which account for between 12 and 15 percent of all Workers’ Compensation expenses.

Loss of Life: The death rate related to slip and fall accidents is second only to transportation fatalities in the top ten categories of accidental deaths.

Liability Mitigation:  Owners/operators of businesses can mitigate liability by acting prudently in the standard of care maintained for their facilities.  Documentation of due diligence and slip resistance testing will enhance standing in any legal issues.

Insurance Costs: Many insurance carriers will discount annual premiums due to use of the SlipSafe Tile solution.

Surface Volume:  Potentially dangerous, tile floors are everywhere across multiple industries due to aesthetic appeal, easy maintenance and durability.

OSHA & Americans with Disabilities Act: Both mandate a safe work environment for employees and business customers.

Common Sense: We should keep our homes and businesses as safe as possible.
