    I have a member of staff who works in an office with a hard vinyl floor which slopes slightly causing the chair to move whilst she isusing it.  The office is located within a clinical area so putting down a carpet or rug is not an option; in addition, she has tried using braking castors but didn’t get on with them.  Does anyone have any alternative suggestions?

    Thanks in advance



    I have seen this before.  If levelling the floor is an option, that is the best.  Otherwise, you have hit on some of the other options.  Also consider, reorienting the desk so the tilt causes less problems.   If the tilt is sideways, then put her desk perpindicular to the tilt so she is rolling towards her workstation as opposed to away.  A mat just beneath her chair to increase the friction was not acceptable?
