Cintas Corporation on September 20 launched its new comprehensive safe floor program. Developed to provide a cost-effective solution for protecting and maintaining floors on a daily basis, the program enables businesses to maximize the life of flooring while improving safety and image. Its mats are designed to capture contaminants and moisture before they are tracked through a facility, while Cintas’ services remove them in order to reduce slips and falls.
“According to the National Safety Council, more than 9 million disabling slips and falls occur each year with an average cost of more than $20,000 per claim,” said Mike Thompson, senior vice president, Cintas Facility Services. “Our safe floor program ensures that companies can keep their employees, customers and contractors safe, while minimizing risk.”
Cintas’ safe floor program consists of three steps: Protect, Maintain and Deep Clean.
“Consumers often judge a business’ cleanliness based on a floor’s appearance,” said Dave Mesko, senior director of marketing, Cintas. “Our program not only makes floors aesthetically pleasing, but also improves safety and protection while reducing cleaning costs and extending floor life.”
