It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year For Winter Mats

Holiday shoppers in the Mid-Atlantic brave the weather each year to shop for the gift-giving season.

The holiday season is upon us, which means parties and gift giving. People storm the retail stores shopping for a perfect gift. They line the grocery store checkout lines, carts filled with enough food for an army. For many stores, this is their most lucrative quarter.

However, what many storeowners don’t realize is that these are also the months when the risk of injury on company property is more likely to occur. The lack of walkway safety with the combination of icy weather conditions and heavy foot traffic increase the chances of an employee or holiday shopper slipping and falling, which can be a costly set back for a business. Not to mention that if a person or their child were to fall they might have to spend the season injured or even in a hospital. No one wants to be away from loved ones this time of year, and business owners do not want to have a lawsuit on their hands.

The solution to preventing this problem for retail store owners is as simple as checking your string lights to make sure they work before putting them up (if you’ve used them in your decorating, you know exactly what we mean):

Use proper entrance matting in your facility
