Cleaning specialist CleanSafe Services has pledged to help tackle the more than 20,000 slip and trip incidents that cost UK employers an estimated £0.5bn every year.
CleanSafe’s campaign follows its acquisition of the floor treatment application service of Bonasystems Europe, a leading provider of floor care chemical products.
CleanSafe Services Managing Director Steve Broughton said: “New sentencing guidelines have greatly increased potential fines for slip and trip incidents. This makes it more vital than ever before for businesses to reduce these risks and the associated costs.
“Bonasystems Grip is the go-to product for supporting workforce and customer safety, demonstrating due diligence, and reducing the risk of the potentially huge management and legal costs associated with slip and trip incidents.”
Bonasystems Grip reduces the risk of slips and trips in a variety of high-risk environments, including swimming pools and spas, hotels, transport hubs, shopping centres, schools, and care homes. Customers include Network Rail, Mitchells and Butlers, Sainsbury’s, and Hilton Worldwide.
CleanSafe will spend £250,000 over the next two years to develop the floor product application service and promote the safety benefits of Bonasystems Grip.
