Why are entrance mats for schools so important?
Many accidents in primary, secondary and further education could be prevented through good floor safety measures including the installation of entrance mats. We can help offer the best solution from our wide range of entrance mats for schools, available in a variety of colours and sizes.
One of the sectors being highlighted in the Health and Safety Executive’s Shattered Lives Campaign is Education. According to HSE statistics, slips and trips caused 60% of serious accidents to people working in Education costing some £48.6 million.
Effective entrance mats for schools are just one recommendation in a raft of control measures given by the HSE to enhance floor safety.
Entrance mats must be properly positioned at doors, in adequate sizes, to reduce the risk of slipping. The entrance mats for schools should also be cleaned and well maintained, to effectively remove moisture and dirt from footwear.
Our logomats are one of the most popular entrance mats for schools. There is flexibility to incorporate the school logo, moto or other artwork. Logomats are ideal for creating an impressive reception area.
