In the manufacturing industry, slip and falls are the most frequent cause of non-fatal major injuries. Additionally, bodily reaction, which comprises injuries from slipping or tripping, is the third highest injury category, followed by falls to a lower level.
Non slip steel plate's and steel perforated plate are a cost-effective solution for slip resistant needs in many manufacturing facilities. For this project, SlipNOT® provided 3/4” Grade 2 A36 steel plates in a mill finish and a Grade 2 steel perforated plate which was painted safety yellow; they were attached to the floor around a die machine. The area where the plates were installed is where a roller-coater applies oil to parts and oil vapor eventually coats everything, when operators tighten the bolts on the die they would often face the potential to slip and fall.
