Manage your risk. Avoid liability of slip and fall incidents in your facility, while extending the life of your flooring investment. The Mohawk Group offers a variety of Walkoff Systems, providing a high traction, moisture-absorbing surface that significantly reduces the risk of accidents caused by slippery entryways.
Commercial insurer CNA identifies lack of slip resistance as the number one cause of slip and fall accidents.
Area mats can bunch or ripple, causing people to trip as they enter your facility. Secured firmly to the sub-floor, Mohawk Group Walkoff Systems all but eliminate this risk.
Slips, trips and falls cause 15 percent of the 3.8 million disabling workplace injuries each year, as well as an estimated 5,100 workplace fatalities. Property owners can be held liable for all direct and indirect costs associated with these incidents.1
At an average cost of $28,000 per injury, total liability exposure for the direct costs of slip and fall accidents approaches $16 billion dollars per year. Indirect costs can be as high as $940,000 per incident, increasing your liability by more than 3,300 percent.1
8,000,000+ Slip Hazard
Hard surface flooring combined with traditional matting, is inherently more slippery than carpet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it becomes even more hazardous when wet or soiled. With a higher coefficient of friction than tile, wood, vinyl, concrete and traditional matting, Mohawk Group Walkoff Systems help ensure secure underfoot traction.
In a 2004 study, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimated that more than 8 million people were injured in slip and fall accidents. 1. University of Florida Extension, Preventing Injuries from Slips, Trips and Falls
