Anti-slip matting is a great way to improve worker safety and reduce the incidence of slips and falls in industrial and commercial environments. Slips and falls in wet work areas are a major cause of lost productivity and time due to injuries, as well as expensive insurance liability.
Anti-slip matting provides a slip-resistant surface in wet or hazardous work areas. In addition, a good anti-slip mat can improve moisture drainage and air circulation in wet work areas, further reducing the slip hazard.
Canada Rubber Group Inc. (CRGI) supplies quality anti-slip matting either as fully finished mats, or as bulk matting in roll form. Fully finished mats can be sized for specific work areas, while matting supplied in rolls may be used to cover larger floor areas.
An interesting alternative use for anti-slip matting is in the securing of loads for transport. Anti-slip matting may be placed on truck beds and floors to help prevent secured loads from shifting once the transport vehicle is moving. Anti-slip matting supplied in rolls may be laid on the truck bed for this purpose.
