Avoid slips and trips at work
Slips and trips are the most common cause of injury at work, as well as the number one reason why workers require time off from work. Workplace falls can also result in costly legal issues, but all of this is avoidable with the right equipment.
By providing employees with important safety solutions, such as anti-slip matting, floor markers and storage cabinets, you can drastically reduce the number of accidents in your workplace.
Here we present 5 measures for effectively reducing the risk of slips and trips in the workplace.
Our top 5 tips for preventing accidents in the workplace
1. Firm footing with the right flooring
It's important to consider flooring when planning for a production environment. For example, smooth surfaces can become hazardous when workers bring in outdoor weather conditions. With anti-slip mats, floor coverings and profiles, you can ensure a safe working environment for workers and visitors to your manufacturing plant.
Dirt and debris can easily create slip hazards, especially when you are working in an environment that includes the use of liquids. This is where you need dirt trapper mats, which should be placed at business entrances to trap dust, mud, or water that can be tracked in on the soles of shoes.
Tools and equipment can often be left lying around, which creates trip hazards in working and operating areas. There are various storage options available, which help prevent tools that aren't being used from becoming accidents waiting to happen.
It's important to show workers where different work areas and safe walkways are located in a production environment. Floor-marking tools can be used for walkways, and barriers can mark traffic routes for heavy machinery, such as forklift trucks.
Something that is regularly overlooked in work environments is lighting. Installing proper lighting systems will increase visibility in production areas and reduce the risk of accidents, contributing towards increased productivity.
