The high cost of slip and fall accidents in the workplace is something that all business owners worry about. Even a minor accident with an employee can mean days out of work, workers compensation claims, and a reduction of productivity overall. As serious and costly as these accidents may be, they can be even worse when a customer or client is involved. Even if you can successfully defend yourself against a legal claim, the poor press of a publicized incident is unwanted and can haunt and hurt your business.
Prevention of slips and falls is achieved by employing the deep cleaning methods, technologies, and commercial cleaning services ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca provides for many businesses in the St. Peter, MN area. The floors in many offices are porous, and over time, the buildup of grime can make them slippery. Simply mopping the floors just isn’t enough. The surface needs to receive a thorough and deep cleaning to ensure the flooring doesn’t become sticky or experience premature wear. Our patented Capture and Remove Cleaning® system, along with our green cleaning products, mean that dirt and grease aren’t just moved around on the floor – they’re completely and effectively removed. This leaves the floor brighter, cleaner, and much safer.
You can also take additional steps to help reduce slips and falls between commercial cleanings in the workplace:
- Use slip-proof beveled mats that absorb moisture in entrance areas
- Display “Wet Floor” signs on days when rain or snow may be carried into entryways, thoroughfares, and lobbies
- Train your staff to cleanup spills immediately
There’s no way that any business owner can ensure that floors will always be slip-proof. By instituting a regular commercial cleaning regimen, however, many of these expensive accidents can be avoided. For all of your commercial cleaning needs in St. Peter, MN, contact us today!
