Safe Way Treads Wear Like Iron!
Verified Purchase

I bought a set of these reflective treads for the new deck I built. They are still in great condition after two years of blistering SoCal summer heat and two winter downpours. We are having our house remodeled now, and workers carrying sacks of cement, drywall, lumber and sand are tromping on the stair treads, and they still hold up fine. We hose off our deck regularly as well and they have not come loose.

The Last Bath Mat You Will Ever Buy!
Verified Purchase

My only regret is not finding out about peel and stick bathtub mats 30 years ago. This mat is thin and sticks directly to the tub, so you can hardly tell it's there. Unlike suction cup mats that are bulky and have a tendency to slide around as well as get mildew underneath. Straightforward and simple installation, non-slip surface, and long length make this product a winner in all aspects. Everyone should own one of these.

Super Reflective - Holds Great!
Verified Purchase

Tape sticks to surface like it’s hanging on for dear life - definitely don’t need to worry about it coming off. The reflectiveness of this product is amazing blends in good with aluminum panels so it doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb but when the light hits it you definitely know it’s there super bright.

Poor Lighting Can Lead to Slip and Fall Accidents

Accidents can happen anywhere, from streets and parks to grocery stores and shopping malls. When injuries occur at places of business because the property owners fail to maintain a safe and well-lit environment, the accident that occurs will be considered negligence.

Slips, trips, and falls are common injuries at places of business. While these are often associated with liquids and tripping hazards, they can also be caused by poor lighting.

Problems Caused by Poor Lighting

Whenever part of a business is poorly lit, it presents a number of serious risks to safety, both for employees and for people who visit the premises. Low light situations, broken lights, and outright darkness in parts of a business increase the risk of trips, falls, slips, and other kinds of serious accidents of occurring.

The bottom line is that adequate lighting needs to be in place at a business at all times.

Not Seeing Hazards in Hallways and Walkways

One of the major dangers of poor lighting is that hazards in hallways and walkways may not be visible. These may be objects in the way, such as products and supplies, or they may be tripping hazards, such a power cords, snags in the carpet or rug, and so forth.

Difficulty Seeing Slipping Hazards

Liquids and other items or objects that can lead to slips and falls are another hazard that may be obscured due to poor lighting or low-light situations. When this happens, the chances of a serious injury are likely. Even just a little bit of moisture on a slick surface can increase the dangers of a property.

Major Dangers in Stairwells and Stairways

When lighting is poor on stairways and in stairwells, the dangers are increased immensely. Even with banisters in place, the inability to see steps increases the risk of a slip or fall occurring. These dangers are increased if there are possible slipping hazards or tripping hazards. Safe Way Traction offers high visibility treads that can help make stair safer in low light situations.

Property Owners Should Address Light Problems ASAP
