Shop Hazards

Wet or Slippery Floors

Wet or slippery floors in a shop are a receipt for disaster in a shop.  These conditions are often caused by spilled liquids, tracked in from outdoors, roof leaks and malfunctioning equipment.

To help protect yourself and others:

  • Once a spill has been identified, it should be cleaned up as soon as possible.
  • During inclement weather mats and wet floor signs should be placed at door entrances.
  • Roof leaks should be repaired by qualified personnel as soon as possible.
  • Malfunctioning equipment such as a forklift leaking oil should be tagged out of service and repaired as soon as possible.
