Safety In The Workplace

Some people love a rainy day. Especially if you can curl up on the couch with a good book or a movie. But for the workplace, rain can make for slippery floors. The continuous comings and goings of employees and customers can present a safety problem as they track in mud and dirt. Since we have no control over the weather, the most we can do is mitigate any issues it can cause. Here are a few things that can help:


Keep large mats


By the entries of your business to encourage customers and employees to wipe their feet and prevent debris from being tracked throughout the office.


Buy an umbrella rack


One with plastic umbrella bags is a great thing to have available for people coming in from the rain with umbrellas. Customers can close umbrellas as they enter and put them in a plastic bag until they are ready to leave.


A small awning


Over the entry door is a great way to offer shelter while a client is waiting for a ride or trying to shake off their umbrellas.


Keep a mop and bucket handy


Or purchase a Swiffer® and keep it in a closet or in the break room. The newer models have a bottle of floor cleaner attached.


Keep signs on hand


To warn employees and customers about wet floors.” If needed, rope off the wet area until it dries.
