Any safe options for outdoor metal stairs?

Hey guys, please see attached image a flight of outdoor stairs, is there anything I can put on the stair plates which might help prevent people from slipping please? It doesn't need to rain or snow for people to slip but I have to cater for that too.

You can use a paint on anti slip stair tread paint.

Do A Google search on anti slip stair tread paint.

Thanks, I found this: Sure Step 1 Gal. Anti-Slip Acrylic Latex Interior/Exterior Floor and Concrete Paint-SU-0922 - The Home Depot

but the 2nd to last review shows "Cons: Scratches Easily, washing away for rain, bubbles are formed for rain". Since this is an outdoor stairs I am not sure the constant rain and snow will wash it away?

Also, I am seeing different pricings but have no idea which one to try, would it mean the most expensive is the best product?

not necessarily. You must read the labels on each one and see what conditions are appropriate. I have not used any of those products myself.

I see, I am seeing these as the top 3 but I am thinking the first might be the best for the metal stairs in wet conditions

Dura Grip Safety Yellow

Actually I just spoke with the tech person at Slip Doctors and he's recommending this product for my application:

Tuff Grip Extreme Kit

Issue aside from pricing will be the prep methods needed before applying the paint.

You want something that will last a looooong time and be very non-skid? Chemsol Navy G MIL-PRF-24667, Non-Skid, Military Grade

Don't ask me the cost or application instructions...but if you can land helo's and drive 20 ton trucks on it...it should work for you.
