About Flooring & Matting
Don't be tripped up by using the wrong type of flooring and matting in your business premises, or even worse, none at all - come to us and you'll soon be standing proud. Slips and trips in the workplace cost the UK economy millions of hours in lost working time each year, with the number of people affected topping 11,000 annually, according to the latest Government figures.
It is well known that many of these incidents could have been prevented by a combination of the use of suitable floor-covering materials, and better vigilance.
Being able to go about their work without having to worry about poor conditions underfoot makes anyone feel far more secure, and better able to make a productive contribution to their company.
While precautions such as signposting hazards, and clearing up spills promptly undoubtedly contribute to maintaining a safe workplace, investment in good quality, durable floor tiles, anti-slip matting in areas where hazards are often present, easily-installed walkways and slip-resistant floor tape, along with the application of floor coatings which eliminate the risk of slipping, all help build safety into any workplace.

The HSE's Shattered Lives campaign is aiming to reduce the prevalence of slips and trips in the workplace, which with over 11,000 workers injured last year as a result of slips and trips is a major problem for employers and staff alike.
One of the major causes of slips and trips could be the flooring, which could be wet if sufficient entrance matting is not used, or simply slippery.
Take the following steps to reduce accidents to your employees and customers:
Use appropriate entrance matting during wet weather.
Clean up spills quickly and adequately.
Consider the use of anti slip matting, and anti slip tapes and treads on steps to increase the roughness of the floor surface.
Ensure the floor is maintained to ensure that there are no trip hazards.
If a change of level is unavoidable, use tapes to highlight these.
