Back to Work, Make it Safe

By on January 4, 2011

The fact that slips and trips still account for a third of all major accidents in the workplace is a staggering statistic, and one promoted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Factories and other working environments with wet, oily or greasy floors can benefit from industrial matting.  For this type of location, it is always beneficial to choose safety matting, such as rubber matting for example, with open holes for efficient drainage rather than a solid surface design.  The latter is best suited for its anti-fatigue properties.

If a rubber floor tile system is preferred rather than rolls of industrial matting, a popular product choice is Fatigue-Step Tiles.  Soft, yet resilient industrial floor tiles Fatigue Step really helps to improve safety underfoot in wet/oily locations while reducing fatigue from standing too.  There is even a blue grease/oil proof version available.
