Are Your Industrial Floors Safe?

JUN 15 2021 | MATERIAL HANDLING, ROBOTICS, SELF-STORAGE

Your business should constantly be talking about workplace safety. But, in those discussions, are you keeping your industrial floors on mezzanines, pick modules and work platforms in mind?

Damaged industrial floors on a mezzanine, pick module or work platform can create dangerous safety hazards in the workplace if not appropriately maintained.

Let's take a closer look at the various issues industrial flooring systems are prone to, the risks they pose, and what your organization can do to alleviate those risks.


Employee Safety Risks Caused by Industrial Flooring Issues

The most obvious safety risk of worn-out, damaged industrial flooring is the fall hazard.

If a surface is bumpy, cracked, or damaged, employees can easily slip and fall. Those falls can result in serious injury and impact employee wellness. It can also reduce your productivity and increase your risk of dealing with a worker's compensation claim.

Non-ergonomic industrial floors can cause physical damage to employees due to excess strain. And when employees feel more worn out, they may be more prone to injuring themselves too.

Bar grate flooring can also have issues. When debris or objects fall through bar grate floors, they can easily break and/or hurt employees below. Damaged bar grate, industrial flooring can be difficult to roll carts and pallet jacks on.


How To Improve The Safety Of Your Industrial Floors

All industrial flooring, no matter what type are prone to grime or damage. Providing your industrial floors with the proper maintenance is necessary to keep a safe working environment.

Here are some maintenance tips to keep in mind:

  • Have your industrial mezzanine floor system properly installed by professionals
  • Sweep floors daily to remove dust, dirt, and debris
  • Keep sharp objects away and refrain from excessive loads to avoid damage
  • Clean the floor following the flooring manufacturers directions
  • Take care of all spills right away
