Choose the Right Entrance Matting for Fall Prevention

Slips, trips, and falls are the second leading driver of claims costs for workers’ compensation policyholders and a major general liability risk. A simple way to reduce these types of accidents is by using the right entrance matting to prevent moisture and contaminants from being tracked into your building, causing a hazard.

There’s more that goes into selecting entrance matting than you might think. Matting material, location, and length all need to be considered. You can’t just set them and forget them, either. Establishing a cleaning and inspection routine ensures your mats remain effective.

This 3-minute “Safety in Action” instructional video walks you through all you need to know and more. Watch and learn how to choose the right entrance matting for your workplace.
