There a four kind of different surfaces where Vigil Antislip can be constructed:
You have a choice to make, when looking at antislip options for use in your field of operations, whether you like it or not, you have to decide:
- Do you want genuine long term or even life of project complete anti-slip protection?
- Do you just want to be seen to be reducing your exposure to slips and falls by purchasing the cheapest products available?
The first option may be a little more expensive initially – but it will serve you well and eliminate the possibility of slip related accidents. The total cost of ownership will be far less!
Option 2 may be cheaper initially, but premature wear will continue to expose you and your company to risk. In addition, in order to maintain a non-slip environment, the products will need to be replaced more than once. Factoring in the removal, replacement and reinstatement costs, the total cost of ownership will be far higher for the “cheaper” option than for Vigil Antislip. These products – often fibreglass – are made to a price, not a high level of quality. The manufacturers do not understand or care for the dynamics, the risks, or your exposure to potential injuries. These products are made by companies who saw the potential profits in the safety business and do not subscribe to the safety vision.
What is the basis for your decision?
Generally, your decision will be based on information provided to you by a range of manufacturers or resellers. If replacing prematurely worn or damaged materials, you know who not to trust with the safety of your personnel. So before you make a final decision, consider the reputation of the manufacturers and the products they manufacture, their customers, the simplicity and authenticity of their warranty, and their testing regime.
