In every serious workshop, safety is the number one priority. With heavy machinery, power tools, and large-scale projects surrounding the hard-working craftspeople that inhabit them, the stakes are as high as it gets within the walls of nearly every type of workshop. Considering such high stakes, it is the responsibility of those that outfit workshops to be mindful of workplace safety and get creative with ways to minimize accidents and injury.
Grip Where You Need It Most
Perhaps the most crucial element of your workshop facility to fortify is the floor. Between oil from vehicles and dust from carpentry shop floors can develop dangerous slippery areas, dramatically increasing the possibility of an accident. Plenty of non-slip surfaces exist such as soft-compound rubber or carpet, but when it comes to the tough environment that even your average workshop presents, a more rugged material like PVC is easy to clean and sure to stand the test of time.
PVC and other durable yet grippy surfaces on the floor can improve upon your shop’s existing safety standards in countless ways in professional and home workshops alike. Place them under vehicle inspection bays for a durable, easy-to-clean worksurface with loads of grip. For woodworkers, a grippier floor in the working zone of tools like table saws and jointers allow for added peace of mind when running such large dangerous equipment for years to come.
