Anti-slip flooring in the catering trade
03 March 2022
SLIP RESISTANCE for workplaces in the catering industry is regulated according to DIN 51130 and is divided into the slip resistance classes R9 to R13, with R13 being the highest slip resistance class.
The potential to slip in kitchens is particualrly high due to oils and greases that come into contact with a tiled floor. A good measure to prevent slipping accidents is anti-slip matting. Our mats are easy to apply as a non-slip floor convering.
However, slipping is not the only source of danger that can lead to staff absences. In the catering industry, it is normal that workers stand for long periods of time. This often leads to heavy legs, back pain, and other illnesses that are summarised under the term MSD. You can find out how to prevent MSDs in Coba Europe's Stand Up For Health eBook.
