Non-Slip Galvanized Steel Stair Treads Installed at Burger King

Galvanized Steel Stairway at Burger King
  • The Situation:

    The food service industry deals with several of elements that can be problematic and result in workplace injuries. Water, ice, grease, spilled food, and day-to-day foot traffic are just some of the foundations present in a fast food restaurant that can become hazardous. Employees are highly recommended or required to wear a non-slip shoe, but sometimes even those fail to get the job done.

    The Burger King franchise in Brampton, Ontario has a stairwell leading to the basement that is accessed by their employees frequently throughout the day. The owner began searching for options that provided added traction on the steps to increase the safety of his workers.

  • The Solution:

    In order to keep his staff on their feet, the owner of the restaurant contacted SLIPNOT to provide non-slip stair treads to be installed on the staircase leading to the basement storage rooms. After reviewing project details and specifications, SLIPNOT provided (14) 3/16” x 11” x 39” galvanized steel treads which were retrofitted over the existing staircase within the facility. SLIPNOT provided countersunk holes so that the treads could be easily bolted down.

  • The Impact:

    Galvanized steel provides protection against rust and corrosion that can occur in wet environments much like the fast food industry, ensuring lasting quality that the restaurant can trust for years to come. The owner of the Ontario Burger King has reported back to us with positive results stating, “[Our] floors can get greasy and stairs can be slippery and dangerous…these are working out great.”

    OSHA estimated that employers pay almost $1 billion per week for direct workers’ compensation costs alone. Initial cost may seem high at first, but just one accident can surely surpass that one-time fee
