    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?

    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?
