It is paramount that construction sites do all they can to minimise the risk of accident or injury to personnel on site. A common cause of accidents are trips and falls, which are often easily prevented.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • The site brought in rubber mats to provide safe access to site over steel being fabricated before concrete pours.
  • The mats offer more grip under foot and on the steel itself than plywood, which is typically used in this situation, thus helping to reduce potential slips, trips or falls.
  • They are purpose built for access so there is no confusion as to whether plywood is a form of access or being used as part of the falsework.
  • The mats are of a good size and weight which allow them to be carried safely to where they are required.

These mats provided a cost-effective way to mitigate safety hazards while the flooring on site was unsafe.
