SlipAlert saves you money on cleaning
Commercial cleaning of large areas of floor can carry a high cost. On the one hand you want to reduce those costs, on the other hand you want the floors to be clean and safe. Whether you run your own cleaning team or outsource the cleaning you will want fast efficient cleaning that does the job. Monitoring the slip risk will tell you a lot about your cleaning: are the floors clean, are they being cleaned often enough/too often, are they being cleaned at the right time of day, does the cleaning remove ALL of the contaminants, is there a slippery residue after cleaning, have mistakes been made?

Different floors = different cleaning demands
If every floor was the same then cleaning would be a lot easier. However, not every floor is the same. Floors are made of different materials, subjected to different contaminants and levels of foot traffic. Your cleaning staff will often have to use different cleaning procedures, different cleaning machines, different methods. How do you know the floors are clean and safe?
Training and Involvement of Cleaning Staff
Training your cleaning team on the value of slip prevention will benefit your business in many ways... it will reduce slip injuries among cleaning staff, it will motivate cleaners to look for potential risks that can be managed out, and it will reduce slip accidents and slip injuries. Simple awareness courses show cleaning staff the visibly different slip risk between a clean dry floor and a wet or contaminated floor.

Avoid Costly Management Slip Ups
A small slip up by one inexperienced manager led to slipping problems. Its is easy to get things wrong and create slip risks. One manager changed the time of cleaning so that offices looked clean for evenings taff arriving. unfortunately this meant that floors were left wet during the change of shifts. Hundreds of staff were now walking on wet slippery floors. After 5 years with no accidents the company had 3 slips injuries in one week.
Different situations make different demands upon the new floor that you require
When you specify or buy a new floor, you want the right type of flooring that is safe. A pool surround must be safe when wet and it must be easy to clean to prevent a build up of body fats. A sports hall will mainly be dry but you will need a floor that is safe with trainers, bare feet and possibly socks, and you will need a floor that stays reasonably safe if there is dust or water on the floor.
