Employee morale is tied to job satisfaction, engagement, staff retention, and overall productivity. High morale in any industrial organization creates a healthy culture. You can provide staff with top-notch benefits and regular feedback — but did you know your flooring can also play a part in making your industrial environment a great place to work?
Industrial epoxy flooring systems are commonly used in warehouses and factories because they are highly durable surfaces that easily withstand the day-to-day rigors of a busy industrial setting. It’s also important to acknowledge that even the type of flooring you choose can impact the well-being of your staff. Read on to discover how Everlast® Epoxy flooring can improve industrial workplaces.
Staff safety and minimizing the risk of injury
Slips, trips, and falls are the most commonly reported workplace injuries and cost employers over $17 billion every year.* After a fall, the average recovery time for an employee is 11 days,* which affects productivity and increases the risk of a costly lawsuit.
You can help your warehouse staff feel safer in the workplace by installing a slip-resistant epoxy floor. Everlast® Epoxy flooring is created using small, natural marble stones with an abrasive finish to give added grip and protection against slips and falls.
In industrial workplaces where grease, water, or oil is frequently used, textured epoxy flooring can help create a safer environment — even under wet conditions.
Seamless flooring to keep machinery running smoothly
Heavy plant, forklift trucks, and machinery are commonplace in large industrial settings, but their use can cause cracked or pitted floors. Such problems can cause damage to those same vehicles your staff rely on to do their jobs. When a wheel snaps off a fully laden trolley of products because of a chipped floor, you could be facing an expensive repair bill.
Forklift operators will feel safer when a seamless industrial epoxy flooring surface supports them as they perform their daily duties. Everlast® Epoxy flooring is a resin-rich formula that is trowelled directly onto the substrate and fuses without joins.
Most alternative flooring solutions cannot boast a seamless finish, which leaves them prone to lifting or cracking. But the hard-wearing yet flexible, joint-free finish of our epoxy flooring system will easily cope with many years of heavy plant activity.
Budgets are tight — get your flooring right the first time
In a competitive world, you need to make the right decisions for your business the first time. Ensuring that all areas of the organization are pulling their weight starts from the floor up.
Epoxy resin floors are durable and long-lasting and are an ideal replacement for a failed warehouse floor. Although we concede that there are cheaper flooring alternatives that look great initially, we focus on providing high-quality industrial flooring that not only looks good but is designed to outlast inferior surfaces like concrete or rubber.
Finance and facility managers who chose Everlast® Epoxy flooring can rest assured that they have installed a superior floor that will last for decades. This means, in the long run, that there will be more money within the organization to spend in other areas to push the company forward, create more business and profits, and ensure the happiness of their customers and employees.
All employees deserve a bright, airy working environment
If your staff have a pleasing working space, their productivity rises. The highly reflective surface of an epoxy resin floor bounces light around the building, creating an airy environment and reducing the need for artificial lighting (and saving $$$ on energy bills as well!)
Our flooring is available in a choice of over 50 colors and can be used to reflect your corporate branding — we can even install designs and logos into the flooring surface for truly unique solutions. And, of course, an attractive floor adds a new level of professionalism to your operation, impressing all staff, visitors, and potential customers who visit your facility.
