“Keep a steady foothold with Action Handling” All our safety treads & decking equipment is designed to comply with Health & Safety regulationsSafety of personnel in environments where there are slippery surfaces is absolutely vital. When a sub-contractor of British Waterways noticed an increase in injuries and sick-leave at one particular site, they decided to investigate. The conclusion of this was that a large number of the workforce had slipped on unsecure flooring and something had to be done immediately to ensure that Health & Safety regulations were being adhered to.
