The management of Ikeja City Mall has expressed satisfaction with the efficacy of No-Slips Limited’s non-slip floor treatment and the quality of work done by its well-trained staff on their floor.
A large portion of the mall was recently treated by No-Slips Limited to increase the co-efficient of friction and thereby reduce the possibility of slip and fall accidents by visitors to the mall and members of staff.
In a letter of appreciation, Steve Idonigie, the Operations Manager of Ikeja City Mall, said: “We write to thank you for the amazing difference we have experienced on our floors since they were treated with your anti-slip product.
“We used to receive a lot of complains of slip/fall whenever it rains and we have tried different approaches but to no avail. Since you applied your product to the floors of our shopping mall, the result has been excellent!
“There has been a remarkable turnaround, there hasn’t been a single incident of slip and fall in the areas treated.
“The efficacy of the product is second to none, this is the first of its kind in this part of the world. The treated areas are no longer slippery especially when wet.”
Reacting, the Chief Executive Officer of No-Slips Limited, Charles Igbinidu, said more companies and individuals in Nigeria are beginning to take floor safety seriously.
Igbinidu added he is not surprised with the high demand for floor safety treatment, stressing that no amount of money spent on safety can be compared to the emotional and physical pain accidents bring.
He said: “We have heard stories of people who slipped while walking on the doorway of their offices and sustained life-threatening injuries such that their companies had to spend so much in flying the victims abroad for treatment. There are also stories of people who have lost their lives after slipping and falling in their bathrooms.
“Slip and fall accident can happen anytime, anywhere; On a rainy day, the entryway of every store and office building becomes a danger zone to customers and staff. Every marble floor that has just been mopped, every kitchen in every restaurant or school cafeteria; every bathtub in every hotel and home, every washroom floor with a few drops of water, high-traffic areas where spills, drops and pools can occur are especially at risk i.e. homes (bathrooms, tubs, kitchens, stairs, seating rooms) and businesses/commercial places (Malls, hotels, restaurants, banking halls, offices, factories, swimming pools etc.). Having a secure floor to walk on gives peace of mind and confidence both at home and offices.
“No-Slips Limited is therefore into the business of giving that peace of mind, we can never seem to be too careful as slip and fall accidents happen unexpectedly. The consequences sometimes, unpleasant.”
No-Slips Limited is a floor and bathtub treatment company based in Lagos, Nigeria.
It is the sole distributor and partner of Sure-Step non-slip company in the country.
