As the temperatures fall, as the weather changes and we get closer to winter, we need to recognize the conditions that will expose all of us to injuries due to slip and fall accidents caused by rain, sleet, snow or ice.
We are acutely concerned with the potential perils that visitors to our clients’ offices or facilities can face, after successfully walking during wet weather, only to slip and fall after entering a lobby or reception area because there were no “walk-off” mats or “runners” present to capture moisture from footwear.
Now’s the time to purchase and install walk-off mats and runners to protect your staff and your visitors from slip and fall accidents while visiting your facilities. The investment in walk-off mats and runners is relatively small, when compared to the cost of litigating one major injury caused by an unprotected wet and slippery floor.
Team Clean will be happy to provide a floor safety evaluation for you. Please feel free to contact us to help you protect your visitors and staff during the coming winter months. And always remember to wipe your feet before you enter the building!
