First Guard Coatings, Americas Slip and Fall Prevention Team, announced its growth into multiple new territories, representing a significant footprint expansion for the Company. First Guard’s super grip non slip eco-friendly floor coating has been embraced by the restaurant industry and the industrial community as a highly effective way to reduce slip and fall accidents due to wet surfaces.
“We started this Company in Fort Worth, Texas where we grew our operations and perfected our product and service. We then grew to cover all of Texas, and rapidly added New Orleans, the Phoenix area and Las Vegas to our service areas. Today we are so pleased to announce that we are expanding our slip and fall prevention solutions to Atlanta, Orlando, and South Florida including West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami,” says Pat Forbes, Founder of First Guard Coatings.
According to the National Safety Council approximately 25,000 people a day are victims to slip and fall accidents with claims related to these accidents amounting to over $30 Billion per annum. In fact, according to the National Floor Safety Institute, America’s supermarkets spend over $450 Million per year defending slip and fall claims. “At First Guard our number one mission is safety. Slip and fall is always on the mind of our restaurant group clients. It is an ever-present risk and a problem for which we strive each day to be a part of the solution. As our restaurant industry partners can attest, our product works,” Forbes adds.
First Guard Coatings is a proprietary eco-friendly floor coating that applies clear, without any harmful fumes or chemicals. The application of First Guard can increase the slip coefficient of a wide array of surfaces including tile, concrete and wood, which may significantly decrease slip and fall incidents.
