In high-risk work environments where a moment of absent-mindedness can cause severe injury or even death, it’s essential to use every possible opportunity to promote safe work practices. Alongside signs, safety message mats help continuously remind workers of safety procedures by taking advantage of the time they spend glancing at their feet.
Safety message mats are multi-functional; they trap grime and water, keeping a work environment clean, while offering safety reminders to anyone entering or exiting a room.
The messages on these safety mats can vary from casual greetings and notices to restrictions and warnings. While messages like “Hard Hat Required” focus on a specific safety regime, “Safety Starts Here” promotes overall safety in a workplace.
There are two kinds of safety message mats available: WaterHog and Hog Heaven.
- WaterHog safety message mats feature ultra-absorbing alternating fabric nubs that effectively capture dirt and water. These mats are made using polymeric plastic material or elastometers molded into rubber. Because of its water dam border, dirt and moisture is trapped inside the mat’s ridges. The message on the mat is displayed on the corner.
- Hog Heaven safety mats have therapeutic cushioning to provide comfort to tired feet and also offer protection against grime and water. Hog Heaven mats are fabricated with a closed-cell Nitrile/PVC cushion backing and a permanently molded Nitrile rubber top surface. The message displayed in the center is printed on the textured surface made of 20% recycled material. These mats have beveled, OSHA-approved yellow striped borders.
Both mats offer superior scraping and cleaning action and are certified as slip-resistant by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI).We have pre-printed safety message mats in stock, or you can opt for a customized design featuring your message of choice. View our full selection here!
