Over a third of all major injuries in the workplace are down to a slip, trip or fall according to the Health and Safety Executive. That is some 10,000 accidents resulting in serious injury reported annually.
The HSE strongly promotes that employers take precautionary actions to eliminate, or certainly reduce, the risk of slipping in the workplace. There is no better time than the present for scrutinizing floor safety to remove the horror of slip-related accidents.
Anti-slip industrial matting can be effective in reducing slip accidents, especially in wet or oily conditions.
There is a huge range of industrial rubber flooring and safety matting available, many with open holes designed to allow fluids to disperse through to the underside.
It’s a good idea to look out for products that have been tested for slip-resistance of which COBA Europe has many to offer included within the range of industrial rubber flooring, tiles and matting.
