OSHA Floor Mat Requirements & Floor Safety Products – New Pig

Choose the right drain cover and save some cash.

Slips, trips and falls are the leading cause of worker accidents. And because inconspicuous slippery spots are harder to identify, they're more likely to cause a slip and fall accident.

Take a clipboard or notebook and look around your facility to identify potential hazards — especially in these areas:

Production: Overspray, machine leaks, metal shavings, condensation from pipes, clutter.

Fluid Transfer: Leaks and drips from pumps, faucets and hoses.

Fleet Maintenance: Open oil pans and containers, oily or wet floors, trip hazards.

Warehouses and Loading Docks: Rain or snow seeping under doors, loose packing materials, leaking containers.

Entrances: Entrance mats that don't lay flat or capture water, poor lighting, low friction floor surfaces.

Restrooms and Locker Rooms: Wet and slippery floors, overflowing waste cans, leaky soap dispensers.

How does your list look? Chances are you found a couple of things that no one has noticed, so now you can take steps to correct the problems and make your facility a safer place.
