Why Are Mats So Important During The Winter Months?

Keep Your Customers Safe From Slips and Falls This Winter

 

There are countless reasons as to why it is crucial for businesses to have proper matting on their floors during the long winter months.  This type of weather tends to make floors much more wet and slippery, which can potentially lead to unnecessary slips and falls from both customers and employees.  This is obviously, something that should be avoided at all costs as the safety of your customers should be the top priority. 

 

Floor mats can help in the following ways:

- Prevent slips and falls, and reduce the risk of liability
- Reduce daily cleaning costs by substantially minimizing tracked-in soil.  Research shows that overhead costs associated with cleaning greatly increases during the winter months. 
- Extend the lifespan of flooring surfaces
- Help maintain a great impression with your customers. 

- With Swan, your soiled mats are picked up at your location for each service cycle, and then exchanged with clean ones.  The soiled items are brought back to our plant for professional cleaning.  It’s as easy as that.

How can you prevent accidents from slips and falls in your workplace?

Statistics show that 77% of slips and falls happen on the same level from slips and trips. Slips happen when there is too little traction between footwear and walking surface. Common causes are occasional spills, wet or oily surfaces and weather hazards. 

Having a mop to clean up wet floors and spills, and placing mats in areas that may be wet from weather or other spills, are cost effective ways to manage these hazards that can occur in your workplace.
