The Opportunity

Leverage the trends and focus on improving Workplace Safety and the increase in personal injury litigation.

Grip Guard is Australia's number #1 anti-slip safety treatment for wet slippery floors, one of the major high level causes of workplace slip/fall injuries.

If you're interested in a business that you can run to suit your lifestyle and goals, then Grip Guard may be the business for you.

The Grip Guard trademark is owned by Grip Guard, which has the exclusive worldwide distribution rights of all Grip Guard products.

Please read the enclosed information and, if you'd like to know more, we will require you to read and sign the enclosed Confidentiality Agreement. In fairness to other Licensees we feel the information provided should remain confidential should you decide not to become a Grip Guard Licensee.

Complete our Licensee Application Form as part of our appointment process. Should you have any questions or further information please contact us on 1300 30 4747 (1300 30 GRIP).


The Market

According to Work Cover, slip/fall injuries are estimated to cost $1.5 billion per annum. There are literally thousands of workplace incidents per year, and this doesn't include those that don't result in an injury... but potentially could have.

Add to this the thousands of slip/fall injuries among older persons, people with disabilities and the general public each year.

It is for reasons like this that Workers Compensation premiums are on the increase, and skyrocket for any business that experiences slip/fall claims.

In fact, WorkCover legislation requires an employer to "provide and maintain so far as practicable for employees a working environment that is safe and without risks to health."

WorkCover statistics show that slip/fall injuries are the No.#2 accident problem in the workplace

 

 

A study by Monash University researchers of injuries among people aged 65+ years found that 66% of reported cases were due to a fall of some nature. Where "Floors and Flooring Material" cause the fall, in 81% of cases where information was available, the fall was due to slippery, wet floors.

 A study by the Royal Australian College of Physicians in 1991 showed that 16% (one in six) patients suffering hip fractures die within 6 months and that 50% require long term nursing care.

 

 


Size of the Potential Market

Grip Guard effectively treats many different types of surfaces including:

20,000,000 square metros and rising

16% (approx.)  

84% (approx.) 

 55% of total = 11,000,000 per sq meter per annum

Total market estimate 

Locally manufactured  

Imported tiles

Floor tiles

 

Many of these products are imported into Australia so statistics on the total market are difficult to determine. However, the estimated size of the ceramic tile market alone is huge.

That would make the amount laid over the last 10 years almost unimaginable. Remember that these numbers don't include the many square metros of terrazzo, granite and marble floors in place today and newly laid every year. And the cement/concrete floor market is enormous. Smooth finish cement/concrete pathways, driveways, steps, and warehouse and factory floors are a huge market. Add all these opportunities together to truly appreciate the size of the potential market for Grip Guard.
