Transport Hub Issues

Travellers and employees need a safe, clean and healthy environment in which they can transfer between drop-off and transport boarding areas, as well as a comfortable and relaxing area to wait for departures and arrivals.

Clearly, wet and/or dirty floors pose a direct threat to this ideal environment.

With 85% of all the dirt and moisture in a building coming in on the soles of shoes, good quality, open structure entrance matting systems play a vital role in stopping and capturing dirt and moisture at the entrance – unlike basic matting which quickly becomes ineffective as the dirt and moisture simply sits on top, and this is then carried into the workplace by the next employee or visitor.

These are just some of the knock-on effects that dirt and moisture can have on transport hubs.

By specifying a basic entrance mat, damage will occur leading to trip-hazards

Customer complaints = less repeat business. Increased maintenance costs

Unplanned maintenance and cleaning will have an impact on the optimum flow of travellers

This can all lead to delays and passenger frustration at peak times

Transport providers (airlines etc) are concerned with delays

Increased business from transport providers is at risk

There is a risk of traveller and staff slips and trips from wet and dirty floors and poor-quality mats

Slips and trips cost UK business 1.15 million staff days (costing £500m last year)

14,500 prosecutions and enforcement notices issued for slip and trip related accidents,

The resulting average fine was over £32,000
