The Real Impact of Entrance Mats on Workplace Safety

Entrance Mats Image

Entrance mats are something that are easy to overlook for the everyday visitor to a workplace or organisation, but they are in fact a crucial part of workplace hygiene and safety, and with the COVID-19 pandemic, this is more important now than ever before.

Entrance mats prevent foot-borne dirt and grime from being brought into your building, while simultaneously improving hygiene and general safety.

Why Commercials Spaces Need Floor Mats

Health and safety should be the priority in any building, business or organization. The vast majority of people take entrance mats for granted or even have no idea what purpose they serve, but they need to be in place anywhere that footfall can be expected. There is also the added benefit of promoting your image or message if required (such as a social distancing reminder or similar).

Entrance mats can help to:

  • Prevent slips and falls (over 40% of all workplace injuries)
  • Reduce internal grime and floor cleaning costs (85% of all indoor soil comes from people’s feet)
  • Provide a welcoming and professional environment
  • Absorb moisture and prevent hard floors becoming slippery

They should also be:

  • Functional, fit for purpose
  • Safe and seamlessly serviced by experienced phs professionals
  • Implemented as part of an effective overall solution (creating 3 separate zones has been found to be the most effective)
