Helping prevent slips and forklift accidents

02 September 2019

Forklift truck wheels allow dirt and water to migrate into a facility. This can create a potentially dangerous environment and increase the likelihood of injuries. A simple solution is provided by Waterhog Forklift Mats from Mats4U.

Not only do trails of dirt and water create an unpleasant work setting, they can lead to forklifts skidding, slips, falls and other accidents. Mats4U says about 1300 UK employees are involved in forklift accidents every year. Waterhog Forklift Mats can prevent dirt and water from being tracked into a facility, and therefore prevent these problems occurring.

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 locks in moisture and holds onto dirt. Not only does this create a safer workplace, but they also provide traction to prevent forklifts from skidding.

Mats4U says that using Waterhog Forklift Mats in warehouse entrances and loading bays can help improve health and safety. To request a free sample, for more information, or to place an order, please call 0121 313 6748 or visit: www.mats4u.co.uk today. Stand 18N130
