We had a special floor installed in our histology area.  It has small,
raised circles of "grit".  We have not had any incidents of slipping since
we had the floor installed.  Previously we had tile installed that was
"gritty"  but after about five years the grit wore off.  It may have been
the way the floor was being cleaned, but we had to have it replaced.  If you
have any questions about the manufacturer etc. I can get that information
for you.
