Office & Workplace Issues



Office and Workplace Issues

Employees want to work in a safe and clean environment, all of which helps contribute to a positive and productive workplace with a motivated workforce. Visitors also make an initial judgement about a business based on their first impressions – with cleanliness one of the key factors they will consider. Clearly, wet and/or dirty floors will severely impact on these vital first impressions.

With 85% of all the dirt and moisture in a building coming in on the soles of shoes, good quality, open structure entrance matting systems play a vital role in stopping and capturing dirt and moisture at the entrance – unlike basic matting which quickly becomes ineffective as the dirt and moisture simply sits on top, and this is then carried into the workplace by the next employee or visitor.

Here are just some of the knock-on effects caused by dirt and moisture in the workplace:
