Prevent Slip and Fall Lawsuits
A slip and fall lawsuit occurring in your facility can damage your reputation and financial well-being. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, compensation and medical costs relating to employee slip and fall accidents is approximately $70 billion dollars annually. When falls are known for being one of the top related accidental injuries every year, chances are this could happen to your facility. When mats are placed around your facility the potential for this happening is greatly decreased. Mats are designed to trap all the dirt, moisture and debris that enter your facility by foot traffic. They provide a slip resistant walking surface and act as a first line of defense when it comes to preventing slip and fall accidents.
Reduce Maintenance Costs
Clean Management estimates that 90 percent of building maintenance cost is labor. It’s also estimated that removing a single pound of dirt from a modern building can exceed 600 dollars or more. This means keeping your facility clean can end up costing you more money than expected. Mats will be able to reduce these costs for you by acting as a silent facility manager. Not only can they trap dirt, moisture and debris, they can stop it from being dragged onto your facility floors. When there is less mess to clean up, you will spend less money on maintaining your facility.
Keep Floors Protected
With facilities that experience heavy foot traffic, floor protection is important. This can be especially true in entry ways where people are constantly flowing in and out. There are many different factors that can affect the well-being of your floor. This can include weather influences, rough shoe surfaces or just the natural progression of wear and tear. Providing mats around your facility can help stop these factors from effecting your facility floors. They act as a protective barrier between outside influences and the floor you are trying to protect. This way your durable mat will be able to stand up to these hazards so your floors don’t have too.
