Buildings need floor mats in several different locations in order to maintain a safe environment. Falls are the second most common workplace accident and can be caused by many factors such as cluttered walkways, wet or uneven surfaces, distractions, and poor housekeeping practices. Floor mats at entrances and other problem areas can reduce the risk of these mishaps and keep employees and customers within your building safer. Consequences of Slip-and-Fall
