Spring can be a treacherous time of year with rain and melting snow creating wet, slippery conditions. It’s not only potentially dangerous but expensive too. Slip falls account for 30% of all injuries and they often lead to costly claims and lost productivity. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 22% of slip and fall accidents result in at least 31 days of work missed by employees. Fortunately, with the proper steps and tools, the opportunity for these accidents can be reduced.
If businesses are vigilant about floor maintenance and take every precaution to create the safest conditions, many slip and fall incidents can be prevented. Make sure you have an effective floor care program in place and the right tools to manage wet floors. Below are a few of the key products Keeney’s offers to help keep floors dry and safe.
- Air movers
- Entrance mats
- Floor squeegees
- Wet/dry vacuums

Make sure you are prepared for the rainy days ahead – the investment now could prevent bigger losses down the road.
