Prevent Forklifts from causing slips in your warehouse

15 May 2017

Forklifts are crucial for the movement of goods in warehouses up and down the country. Unfortunately, the goods aren’t the only thing they bring into the warehouse. They also bring dirt and water from outside into the warehouse, which can have a big impact on health and safety in the building. The problem is usually exacerbated in inclement weather, but fortunately Forklift Mats are a simple solution.

Slips and falls are the most common work place accident and many of these are caused by floors being slippery underfoot from liquids or grease. The warehouse is a particularly hazardous place and so it is particularly important to have this under control. We are very familiar with controlling this issue in and around the main building entrances, but warehouse entrances, where forklifts enter and exit throughout the day, are frequently overlooked.

Forklift mats, work in the same way that a normal entrance mat works at stopping dirt and water coming into your main foot traffic entrances. Rather than wiping footwear, they scrape and wipe the wheels of a forklift as it passes over the mat at the warehouse entrance. The dirt and water is removed and kept on the mat, rather than being transported into the warehouse.


The mats are extremely heavy duty to cope with the weight of a loaded forklift. They can be fixed in place, to stop any movement of the mats.

Forklift mats are a simple solution to a potentially major safety issue. Please contact Mats4U on 0121 313 6748 or visit the website www.mats4u.co.uk for further information.
