Default Need help increasing the coefficient of friction for my tile

The break room at my work has the most slippery tile I have ever had to walk on. And now for some reason my boss has given me the responsibility to find a product to make it less slippery so that he doesn’t have to worry about people getting hurt. I’ve done some basic research on the topic but can’t seem to figure out what will work best for our situation. Does anyone on here have any suggestions or possible remedies to help me out?

I used a product called Johnny Grip back in 09 on my garage floor and its still working great. Google the name Johnny Grip and you will find their site. I love the stuff !!
This is the link I just found Johnny Grip Improves Coefficient of Friction on Tile: Test Results

Consider carpet tiles. I say tiles because they are easily replaced in the event of a likely spill in the breakroom.

Nice to know about this product. Might come in useful for my garage too. Any ideas about the cost?
