While most of us like to party on New Year’s Eve, it’s also important to make it a safe one as A&E Departments are the last place anyone wants to visit on a night of celebration.  Slips, trips and falls are a notorious culprit for accidents so take extra care this evening.

Slips, trips and falls are not just a problem for the high-spirited partygoers.  They are huge concern in the workplace but one easy way of reducing (even preventing) slips is through installation of industrial matting.

For example, rubber matting (especially with open holes for drainage) is effective in providing a safer footing in oily, greasy or wet work locations.

But it doesn’t just have to be rubber matting.  There is a wide choice of industrial matting available including PVC mats, such as Cobamat.
