Slippery floors lead to accidents
and cost you money.
But Simix can help.
Someone falls on your floor. Your first thought: “Are they okay?”
Your second thought: “How much is this going to cost us?”
Falls are costly from an employer’s perspective. Eighty-five percent of workers comp claims come from slip-and-falls at an annual cost of $70 billion. About a quarter of employees who are out on workers comp claims are off the job for an average of 31 days, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Hospital and nursing home patients are especially at risk. The National Floor Safety Institute says that over 60% of nursing home residents fall every year.
Falls account for 8 million ER visits every year. Over half of elderly adults who fall and break or fracture a hip never return home. The average cost of a patient fall is $15,580 per case.
Simix High Shine Ceramic Floor Coating and Simix Ceramic Floor Coating are the least slippery floor coatings on the market today. Simix has been tested in the field by a certified NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) expert using what’s called a “coefficient of friction” test. Simix scored an average of .573 when wet; most insurance companies consider a business at fault in “slip and fall” cases if their floors score below .5.
You can keep customers, staff, patients and visitors safer and save yourself money by coating floors with Simix.
