Concrete floors and workplace safety

It’s important for workplaces to have a flooring option that is safe for their workers. Whether it be a warehouse, manufacturing plant or storage facility, workplace safety is a top priority. If you have a concrete floor, or are considering installing one in your commercial or industrial space, this option creates a slip-resistant surface and enhances safety.

Custom Concrete Creations specializes in polished concrete and epoxy coatings, both of which provide a safe surface for workers. Many wouldn’t think of concrete right away but, there are several safety benefits when it comes to concrete floors and many businesses are now opting for this choice. Here are some safety features of concrete floors!


In a workplace with high foot traffic and machinery use, the right coating on your concrete floor matters. Polished concrete and epoxy coatings are slip resistant which is important for all commercial workplaces. If you want your employees to be as productive as they can be, providing them with a safe environment is one great way to do this. These coatings can minimize workplace hazards and give them a safe surface to get the job done.

Nonporous and grout-free surface

Concrete floors with an epoxy coating are nonporous, meaning they’re smooth and sealed so that liquid and dust cannot get caught in them. Having concrete flooring makes your business safer and healthier. Sometimes in between the slabs of concrete, there are grout lines, but a concrete professional like Custom Concrete Creations can fill them properly, so you don’t have to worry about any grime getting stuck. Healthy employees make for a safer work environment.

Easy maintenance to ensure safety

Less dirt, dust and grime in the workplace makes for a safe environment. Concrete floors are easy to maintain, and all you need to clean them is warm, soapy water and a mop. With a short maintenance list, employees are better able to focus on their own job tasks.

Stained concrete as a safety feature

What’s nice about concrete floors is that you can stain or dye them in a plethora of ways. If there is a path workers should stay out of for forklifts to drive in, you can clearly mark this by staining the concrete. Marking the floor can ensure employees know to stay out of that way and give the person driving the forklift more peace of mind. You can mark any danger zones by coloring the concrete.
