The Importance of Mat Safety
Mat safety in the workplace is critical. It can reduce the chances of slip and fall accidents, as well as, the chance of lawsuits and worker’s compensation claims. Small business owners should understand the necessary safety measures to protect staff and visitors from hazardous conditions, such as slippery flooring surfaces. Injuries on your property can threaten the well-being and financial stability of your company. It also can negatively affect workplace productivity.

The numbers don’t lie. Lack of a mat safety program and improper care of your floor mats can cause serious harm to your staff and your bank account.
A Cared for Mat is a Safe Mat
Slips and falls aren’t limited to wet floors. If the mat you put down to keep people safe isn’t properly maintained, it becomes a safety hazard itself. Unlaundered, curling, and or rippling mats can trip up the people you aim to protect. It’s imperative to make safety a priority when it comes to commercial mats. Fortunately, it’s easy to do.
