Floor Cleaning Can Reduce Slip and Fall Accidents in your Willow Street, PA Business

September 10th, 2018 · No Comments

Many people are surprised to find out that slip and fall accidents are one of the most commonly reported accidents in the workplace. In many cases, they’re also the most preventable! Slip and fall accidents can be both dangerous and costly to your Willow Street, PA business and its reputation. ServiceMaster Building Services of Lancaster County offers professional floor cleaning services to help you prevent the incidents of slip and falls in your building.

One of the best ways to keep your staff, customers, or visitors safe from slip and fall accidents is to keep your hard surface floors clean. In the winter, snow, sludge, and salt can gather on the floor and cause hazards. During the summer, rain, chemicals from lawn care, or oils and grease from parking lots brought in on shoes are the main culprits for causing slips and falls. Regardless of the type of flooring you have, it’s important to have a floor cleaning plan in place for your business to keep the floors looking great and people safe from slips and falls.
Here are some sobering statistics from the NFSI (National Floor Safety Institute) regarding slips and falls in the workplace:

  • Floors and flooring materials contribute directly to more than 2 million floor injuries each year
  • Compensation and medical costs of people falling in the workplace is estimated at $10 to $13 million per-year in the U.S.
  • Falls occur in virtually all manufacturing and service sectors

 

No matter what kind of flooring you have in your facility, it needs to be maintained to help prevent slips and falls with professional floor cleaning.

Hard Floors

Hard surface floors need to be cleaned and maintained regularly to prevent pitting, dipping, and tracks in the flooring which can be a source of slips and falls.

Carpeting

 

Carpeting is often the most expensive investment in your building. Keeping it clean with a professional floor cleaning service keeps it from getting worn, torn, or frayed.

Regardless of the type of flooring you have in your Willow Street, PA business, it needs floor cleaning to keep it looking great and prevent it from causing slips and falls.  ServiceMaster Building Services of Lancaster County can help you properly maintain your flooring and reduce the risk of costly slip and fall accidents.
