Our floor mats can help maintain a clean and dry surface, but there are many other items to consider to ensure slips and falls don’t happen. Have sufficient lighting, keep areas clear of clutter and always close file and storage drawers. The flooring surface needs to be clean and dry and ensure all electrical or other cords that cross floors are covered to avoid a tripping hazard. The Canadian Centre of Occupational Health and Safety offers courses and publications on their website that may be of further assistance when reviewing the needs of your workplace.
Swan replaces wet and dirty mats and mops with clean ones on a regular cycle so you don’t need to think about that. Slips, trips and falls are some of the leading causes for lost time injuries. Take the time to learn how to make your workplace a safer place, and put changes in place before an accident occurs.
