Slippery Tiles in the Shower?

I have recently returned to using my fitness/squash club more regularly, and when I returned the men's locker room had had a makeover, forced by a fire during a period I was not attending.
For a while it has puzzled me that as a result of the makeover, the floor of the shower room is much slippier than I recall it having been.
Could it be deliberate? Can it be awareness of risk compensation?
There is no question my behavior has changed, though I am not sure that my baby steps are a guarantee that I will avoid a nasty fall. Seems a sort of converse Peltzman effect.
