Workplace injuries present liabilities to business and property owners that can oftentimes be avoided with proper preventative measures. According the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), however, over one million Americas endure a fall-related injury every year. To make matters worse, about 17,000 of those affected wind up incurring fatal wounds. Though there are many techniques that can be utilized to thwart injury and ensuing lawsuits caused by slips and trips, one method to reduce the issue of perilous, slippery surfaces is the implementation of mats in entryways.
Inclement weather in particular and the risks it poses in the workplace makes it necessary to take precautions when it comes to preventing slips and falls that occur as a result of wet floors. Mats placed in walkways can help to absorb any rain or melted snow that would otherwise make for a treacherous storefront or office entryway. By removing dirt and moisture from shoes, custom mats make it possible for your company to offer customers and employees a safe spot, protected indoors from the stormy weather.
For clear visibility, it helps if mats contrast with the color of flooring to prevent unintentional trips. At Lord Baltimore Uniform, we can work with your company to create logo mats in a color scheme that coordinates with your building and corporate image while ensuring the safety of those who walk across them. In addition, our mats’ edges taper into the floor to create a smooth transition, rather than a hazardous gap
Using mats to buffer moisture that would otherwise be tracked inside your company’s building is a simple and effective way to help prevent slip-and-fall accidents, ensuring a safe space for clientele and employees while minimizing the risk of facing liabilities.
