Friction Systems Australia recently completed OH&S compliance works at a large commercial site in Melbourne's south east. The project site involved a major renovation and the architect had not specified works detail to meet current 1428 codes. The builders requested Friction Systems to provide suggestions for works to help meet these current codes. Friction Systems was able to establish ramp access, stair nosing and tactiles, which were required to show ‘duty of care’ responsibilities had been met. The slip factor (surface co-efficient) to the wet areas throughout the complex was also reduced. We were able to provide the builder and owner with documented evidence of compliance to reduce risk of slip injury, expensive litigation and Workcover claims. Though renovations to commercial or industrial buildings do not necessarily need to meet current standards, a pragmatic owner or builder would ensure compliance to reduce future legal exposure.
