      We have had similar problems and have had complaints lodged by other 
     departments who have to travel our hallways...the paraffin gets 
     tracked outside the lab and makes for a skating rink for all 
     passersby.  We have gone to Tacky Mats which we place at every cutting 
     and embedding station as well as near the exits.  It has made a HUGE 
     difference for us. We also have our housekeeping staff strip our 
     floors on a regular basis to remove even more of the paraffin debris. 
     The mats can be purchased from Fisher Scientific. If you need more 
     info just drop me an e-mail.  Hope this helps...:)

Would anyone have a solution to slippery floors?  Our housekeeping 
department is no longer polishing our department floors
hoping this will eliminate the problem, but so far no change.  We have tried 
to use mats,  but they are also a
safety hazard and difficult to clean.  I am interested in any products you 
may have on your floors or any recommendations
for a product to remove the build up of wax particles often present in a 
Histology lab.
