How To Reduce Slip/Fall Risk
Slips and falls cause thousands of dollars in claims. To reduce slips and falls, remove risks. Inspect floors for trip hazards like cracks and cords. Cover slippery traffic areas with floor mats. Floor mats will also reduce wet surface area during rainy/snowy weather.
Be sure your floor mat has a nonslip backing surface. Consider using floor mats that absorb water.
Also consider using "wayfinder" floor mats. Wayfinding mats are custom mats that subliminally direct people on a preferred path, away from slip hazards. The key to a successful wayfinding system is to study the way people currently use your facility, then design a wayfinder route that allows them to accomplish their goal safely.
