Slip, trips, and falls
Data from our government (State Claims Agency) has indicated that claims relating to slips, trips and falls between 2014 and 2018 have cost the state €363m in five years. The report from SCA highlighted that 47% of all claims were taken by staff members. The most effective way to save energy cost is quite simply don’t use it. We are not saying do not buy a logo mat, on the contrary, these mats are a great communication medium. In tandem with this thought process if you want a logo mat that is safer than your average mat please ensure that you purchase a mat with heavy-duty safety backing. While the safety backing uses more nitrile rubber and costs about €20 more it is significantly heavier making your mat more stable and less likely to migrate from its intended location, flip over or corrugate all of which can present itself as a trip hazard. Therefore when purchasing a loose-laid or logo mat pay extra attention to the thickness and the weight of the backing and help eliminate the potential for slip, trips, and falls.
