Preventing slips and falls with proper matting

If an employee slips or trips on a workplace floor, it could result in significant injuries. That may cost Minnesota employers and others a significant amount of money. Specifically, American employers lost $62 billion from injuries that caused workers to miss six or more days of work. However, the use of floor mats may make it safer for workers to walk or do their jobs in general without getting hurt.

Standing for long periods of time can result in significant workplace injuries. In addition to general fatigue and discomfort, employees may be at risk of back and leg pain if they stand on a hard surface for too long. Padded matting can add extra comfort for those who must stand to do their jobs. Mats may also be able to drain fluid until spills can be properly cleaned by an employee.

Mats can also provide protection in the event of oil or grease spills. In the meantime, employees can walk or move freely without worrying about slipping or falling. Workers who may work in a dangerous area or around dangerous chemicals may also benefit from floor mats. This is because they can be printed with words or phrases that let an employee know about a potential hazard.

Workplace accidents may cause significant injuries that may involve long recovery periods. In some cases, an employee may never fully recover from injuries experienced at work. However, those who are hurt while doing their jobs may be entitled to compensation. Compensation may help to pay current or future medical expenses as well as replace lost income. Depending on the severity of the injury, full or partial benefits may be available on a permanent basis.
