Floor Mats - The Danger Hidden Under Your Feet!

Floor mats. Especially, after or during a storm, you find them everywhere. Right after you walk into your local grocery, apartment building, department store, office building and supermarket, they're there to sop up the rain and snow melt. But when floor mats are not properly maintained or put down properly and the edges turn up or they gather somewhere in the middle because they are not laid flat against the floor, they become tripping hazards and can cause serious slip and fall accidents in New York City. OSHA even classifies tripping over a curled, cracked, or torn floor mat as one of the most common causes of injury in the workplace.
