Why Are Floor Mats Important in the Workplace?

    23 December 2017

Although, floor mats are commonly considered as an afterthought when it comes to purchasing equipment for your business, they are actually an essential tool for you to have when setting up or upgrading your facility. Here is why floor mats are important in the workplace.

They’re More Hygienic

With staff and customers come in and out of the building, most businesses experience heavy foot traffic in certain areas. That means that these areas can generate a lot of dirt under ordinary circumstances and even more during wet weather.

Did you know that up to 12 times more dirt is tracked into your business when it rains? Unfortunately, it is not a simple matter of just mopping and vacuuming the floors. Believe it or not, less than 40% of dust and dirt can be removed with a vacuum cleaner.

If you want your business to be cleaner, floor mats are the best way to accomplish this.

You Only Have One Chance to Make a First Impression

According to research, 42% of customers report that they judge your business by the cleanliness of the floors. Therefore, if you want to impress potential customers, you must make sure that your floors are always well-maintained. By installing floor mats, you can extend the life of your floors and keep them from being damaged by dust, debris, and moisture tracked in from the outdoors.

Prevent Workplace Accidents

Slip accidents are one of the most common workplace injuries that cost Australian companies millions of dollars every year. The majority of these accidents occur on wet floors which is a hazard that could easily be prevented by something as simple as laying down floor mats in high traffic areas.

In addition to reducing the likelihood that your company faces a lawsuit as a result of a customer who slipped at your business, you can also avoid downtime caused by employees who suffer injuries. Not only do workplace accidents cost your company money, they can also have a negative impact on your reputation and brand.
