Protect Your Floors With Matting
Consider the following four areas for matting placement to help limit indoor contaminants from slips, trips and falls:
These areas include front and back entrances and peripheral doors that lead to the outdoors.
Zones of increased risk include transitional walkways between risk areas.
For example, spaces between the kitchen and front-of-house areas or offices and hallways leading from restrooms to dining areas are particularly susceptible.
Most hallways and corridors in restaurants are considered to be high-traffic zones and should be protected with a matting program.
Also, consider cashier and check-out stations, as there is often increased foot traffic in these locations.
Areas where staff members or patrons frequently stand, such as work stations, check-out counters or produce kiosks, are considered to be productivity zones that can benefit from the placement of matting.
