Oil Resistant Matting

Buy Oil Resistant Matting

Oil can be highly corrosive, especially in workplace environments where surfaces come into contact with oil on a regular, prolonged basis. This can lead to many issues; corrosion of materials, loss of productivity, and an increase in slip hazards.

If your business stores any kinds of liquids on premise, then there is a risk of your employees slipping and causing personal injury. The results of such an incident can be catastrophic. Not only can employees cause permanent damage to their health, you as the employer may also be liable for this.

This is where oil resistant matting comes into play. It prevents degradation of flooring material through its increased resistance and durability with regards to oils and greases it may come into contact with in an industrial setting. Many businesses will hold such liquids. From supermarket warehouses to mechanic’s garages, oils and greases are the lifeblood of industry.  Oil resistant matting can provide you with peace of mind and your employees with a safe working environment.

Oil resistant matting is one of the most effective ways to ensure that your employees are working on a complete and safe flooring situation. It is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to install a solution to the oil and grease problem found in workplaces. The material this matting is made from makes is oil resistant and repels oil and greases, preventing them from causing lasting damage.

What is Oil Resistant Matting?

Oil resistant matting is exactly what sounds like – ground matting specifically designed to withstand constant contact with industrial oil and grease. Oil resistant matting is manufactured using materials which provide a protective and non-reactive surface with regards to oil and grease. Such matting is commonplace in a variety of different workplaces and can save time and money by preventing degradation of tools and surface while minimising health and safety risks to workers.

Oil Resistant Matting in the Workplace

Given that repairs to workplace matting and damage claims caused by such can be quite expensive, it is easy to see why oil resistant flooring is a great addition to any business. As an employer, you could run afoul of heft lawsuits filed by injured and disgruntled employees. It is for this reason that it is a wise idea to invest in oil resistant matting for your workplace.

There are many industries and types of business that benefit from the implementation of oil resistant. On top of these industries, there are also area specific examples that could benefit from the introduction of oil resistant matting:

  • Washing areas. There are areas in many industries, such as hospitality, where a large amount of washing and cleaning takes place. Oils and grease go hand in hand with this kind of situation, and can end up being spread over a work surface. By putting down oil and grease resistant matting, you reduce the hazard cause by such spills.
  • Food Processing Areas. This is where oil resistant matting is commonly found as food processing is a messy job and one which is likely to attract unwanted spills on the floor, especially from oil and other substances. There is a greater risk of employee injury in these areas and oil resistant mats are the easiest way to avoid injury.
  • Workshop floors. Workshop floors are a prime example of a location where oils and greases are spilled regularly. By putting down oil and grease resistant matting, you ensure that workers are less likely to slip and cause injury in an environment which is already accident prone.
