Slip and fall accidents are common in workplaces and can lead to serious injuries resulting in fatalities. It is important to prevent these accidents in order to safe guard the workplace and the employees. Below mentioned are some of the ways to prevent slip and falls in work places.
- Clean and maintain floors properly: A floor cleaning routine should be followed to ensure that surfaces are properly maintained, not to forget routine inspections for debris and other damages so as to ensure proper floor care.
- Use floor rugs and mats on doorways and entrances: Mats absorb liquids and other debris from shoes ensuring non slippery floors. Paper towel and mops should be handy for employees to clean up mess.
- Place warning signs on wet areas: Signs should be placed prominently on recently cleaned and wet floors so that employees can see them and avoid slip and falls. It is also important to remember to pick up the sign from the area when not needed.
- Keep the floor clear from clutter: Clutter causes obstruction on aisles; these objects include waste baskets, cords, furniture etc. Employees can be encouraged to pick and clear all clutters so as to ensure safety.
