When forklifts are moving in and out of a warehouse or factory, they will be bringing in all sorts of dirt, water and debris on their wheels. This can make both the wheels of the forklift, and the warehouse floor slippery. This problem is intensified on wet, rainy days, when the amount of water and dirt brought in increases.

We often think about the danger to pedestrians of walking on wet and slippery warehouse floors, but what about the forklift trucks and their drivers?

Every day, hundreds of feet rush in through the school doors, down the corridors and into classrooms. Throughout the day children and staff move in and out of buildings to get to their next class. At break and lunch times children will run around the school fields and splash in puddles before bringing dirt, mud and water back in with them on the soles of their shoes.

Wet floor signs are likely to be out in full force during the winter months, especially on rainy days. Wet floor signs are designed to prevent slip and fall accidents by providing a warning about a wet floor, but do they really? The signs are used so frequently these days (even when the floor isn’t wet) that we have become accustomed to them, and perhaps dont even notice them! It could even be argued that they are obstructive, and a bit of an eye sore!
