Why do we neglect safety in older buildings?
How many older buildings do we see with obvious safety issues?
Slippery tiles in foyers and toilets. Slippery steps without stair nosing. Stairs and ramps impeding sight impaired people because of the lack of tactile indicators.
Safety on new building sites is of utmost importance. Hard hats, safety glasses, safe walking areas etc are compulsory.
New buildings being built today must adhere to strict building codes especially in the area of safety. Stair nosing on steps, tactile indicators at the top and bottom of steps and ramps and appropriate tiles with relevant slip ratings in the right place.
Duty of Care
A lot owners and managers of buildings wait for an accident to happen before they do something. They are reactive.
Others foresee a problem and do something about it. They are proactive.
Don’t put it off
Don’t wait for someone to get injured. Don’t wait to get sued.
