Examples might include a butcher shop, a dentist office, a hospital, public showers, bathrooms, auditoriums, kennels, actually the list is totally endless, as to how many businesses and commercial establishments need a slip resistant flooring system.

No slip condition is also a theory of engineering or fluid dynamics. It relates to viscous fluids and boundaries thus limiting how much particles can move. Further along with these studies are insurance studies that have recommended that due to the American Disabilities Act (called the ADA) walkways, ramps, and flooring in the food and beverage industry must have a friction level of .60 or more for flat spaces and .80 should the floor be ramped.

OSHA has not gone quite as far, and required that floors should actually have a friction level of .50 OSHA is of course the Federal Agency called the Occupational Safety and Health Administration whose job it is, is to oversee and enforce safety and heath legislation here in the United States. There are even slip meters, which will allow someone to perform the static coefficient of measuring friction.
