How to prevent forklift accidents, slips and falls
16 January 2020
If you operate in a warehouse, you are sure to be aware of the dirt and water trails near your forklift entrances and loading bays.
As forklift trucks go in and out of facilities to transport goods, the wheels allow dirt and water to migrate into your facility. This can create a dangerous environment and increase the likelihood of serious injuries. mats4u believes there is a simple solution to rectify this problem - Waterhog Forklift Mats.
Not only do trails of dirt and water create an unpleasant work setting, but it can lead to forklifts skidding, slips, falls and other accidents. Approximately 1300 UK employees are involved in forklift accidents every year. Waterhog Forklift Mats are designed to prevent dirt and water from being tracked into your facility, and therefore prevent these problems from occurring.
According to mats4u, what makes the Waterhog Forklift Mats so powerful are their effective scraping capabilities, bi-level construction, durability, and highly absorbent materials. To ensure safety and protection, the mats scrape dirt and water away from the wheels, then lock in moisture and hold onto dirt. Not only does this create a safer workplace, but also provides traction to prevent forklifts from skidding.
