  • Make sure your surface is always nice and clean

Why is floor safety important

Floor safety is of the utmost importance in any setting, at home or in the workplace. Flooring can be made from a variety of materials, from natural stone to LVT and vinyl, but regardless of surface type, slip and trip hazards are a risk for everyone. To prevent dangerous slips and trips, floor safety should always be taken into consideration when selecting a floor system and regular maintenance should be conducted to ensure its ongoing performance. Routine inspections should also take place in order to identify any potential issues, such as tears and wear. Additionally, keeping our floors clean is key for keeping them safe since dirt, debris and water all contribute to slippery surfaces. Taking on these preventive measures will not only help prevent accidents related to slips and trips but it is also important for compliance with regulations related to the working environment safety.
