Address Safety Concerns with a Preventative Mat Program
Don’t Wait until it’s too Late
Is your facility protected against slip and fall accidents? If not, it could end up costing you. According to Arbill over one million Americans suffer a slip and fall injury every year. These types of accidents are said to cost a facility 40,000 dollars per incident. This is why taking the proper steps to ensure your facility is protected can be a crucial factor in customer safety. Many employers often take these steps after a slip and fall accident has already occurred. The key to protection is preventing accidents like these from being able to harm you, your customers or your facility. When taking preventative measures such as implementing a mat program, your facility can be protected against the costly dangers of slip and fall accidents.
Mats can Protect your Customers and Facility
Slips can occur from floors or other surfaces that become wet, dirty or oily. This is especially true in entryways where proper entrance matting is not placed. Placing floor mats around your facility can be an easy first step in ensuring customer safety and satisfaction. Being able to keep the surface of a facility as well as the shoes of anyone who walks through it dry, can be a huge deterrent to stopping slip and falls. Mats will be able to combat factors like wet weather by trapping moisture, dirt and debris before it ever reaches the floor. Due to their scraping capabilities, mats can also clean and absorb dangerous substances from shoes. A preventative mat program can be utilized in any industry where a floor can potentially cause a slip and fall accident.
A Program you can Trust
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published a new standard on Walking and Working surfaces. This update now requires employers to train employees on minimizing fall hazards and maintaining fall protection equipment.
