Purpose built office mezzanine floor If you’re looking to improve the organisation and efficiency or your work environment but struggle with space, it might be time you considered Mezzanine Flooring.

Whilst a fantastic solution for a wide range of commercial, industrial, and retail premises there are a number of regulation and health and safety practices both employers and employees should be aware of.

We’ve discussed these below, so read on for more information or contact our specialist team for your mezzanine flooring.

Why Consider Mezzanine Flooring?

A little cramped for space? Struggle to find inventory and stock at the snap of a finger? If so, its time you invested some thought into reorganising your warehouse or other commercial property.

Think of it like this; would you really expect an office employee to work productively and efficiently if their desk was piled high with papers, accessories, and folders? No.

Equally, you and your employees can’t run efficiently if the organisation and planning behind the scenes isn’t optimised to allow staff to do so. Quality mezzanine floors can benefit you in a number of ways including:

  • Maximise and more efficiently manage factories and warehouses
  • Avoid the hassle and expense of extension or relocation
  • Make better use of redundant space
  • A cost effective solution that can be designed to meet your specific requirements
  • Easily installed with minimal disruption

Working at Height

According to the Health and Safety Executive falls from height contribute as a significant cause of injury. Whether risks from low height or the more obvious risk of falling from a distance, mezzanine flooring is a common area of concern.

As such, employers should take this seriously and assess their workplace, workforce, and the procedures in place. Employees have general legal duties to take reasonable care of themselves and others but it is ultimately down to you as the employer to ensure everyone complies with Health and Safety duties which generally include:

  • Must ensure that handrails are installed as well as a toe board around mezzanine floors where people are working
  • Must ensure that mezzanine floors are regularly inspected and properly maintained
  • Employers have a responsibility to identify, assess, and properly control the risks of working at height
  • All work at height must be properly planned and organised
  • All employees must be properly trained and competent
  • Risks must be regularly assessed and appropriated for the equipment provided
