 Floor Matting
Follow these tips from the U.S. Department of Labor for reducing slips and falls:
  • Ensure spills are reported and cleaned up immediately
  • Use no-skid waxes and surfaces coated with grit to create non-slip surfaces in slippery areas such as bathrooms or entryways
  • Use waterproof footgear to decrease slip/fall hazards
  • Use only properly maintained ladders to reach items; do not use stools, chairs, or boxes as substitutes for ladders
  • Re-lay or stretch carpets that bulge or have become bunched to prevent tripping hazards
  • Use prudent housekeeping procedures such as cleaning only one side of a passageway at a time, and provide good lighting for all halls and stairwells, to help reduce accidents
  • Provide adequate lighting especially during night hours
  • Eliminate uneven floor surfaces
