Accidental slips and falls cost businesses a lot of money each year.

Slips and falls hurt!

They are also expensive, with a single slip and fall occurrence costing a business on average: $5,286.00.  Never has it been more important for a business to be aware of the traction levels of their floors and how it can impact safety and insurance costs.

There is now an industry guide to gauge if your floors are: low, medium or high traction and this is the: ANSI B101.1 Standard.  This standard helps you and your business make wise choices about the traction levels of your floors to provide a safe environment for clients, employee’s and guests.

Floorcare USA has a certified floor safety auditor on staff that will test your floors to scientifically measure where your floors rate in accordance with the ANSI B101.1 Standard and help you ensure the safest possible environment.  Potential benefits include: decreased liability, improved insurance rates, lower employee costs due to decrease of work place injury, improved employee moral and performance.

ANSI B101.1 Standard defines 3-wet SCOF ranges or “Traction Levels”:

  • High-Traction (0.6+)
  • Moderate Traction (0.4-0.60)
  • Low Traction (<0.4)
