Kids fall down a lot. In fact, falling is the number one cause of non-fatal injuries for children under 19. Your school janitorial cleaning service can be part of the solution for preventing falls and limiting the associated risks and damages.
Making Entry Ways Safer:
Many slips and falls are caused by tracking in moisture and debris, especially on rainy or snowy days. Absorbent mats along with proper mopping and sweeping around the entrances to your school can help keep all kinds of muck on dirty shoes and boots contained in a small space instead of getting spread from one end of your school to the other.
Cleaning up Spills:
What about accidents in the cafeteria, science labs or classrooms? You need cleaning staff that will respond promptly. Cleaning up spills immediately and keeping bystanders out of the area until it dries will keep small mistakes from turning into something worse.
Storing Items Correctly:
Students carry a lot of items with them each day including textbooks, musical instruments, and clothing. That can create hazards if they’re covering up the floor or clogging up the aisles. A clean environment encourages everyone to follow the established safety protocols for storing their stuff safely.
Cleaning staff can also help identify and correct other common hazards that contribute to falls. For example, light bulbs may need to be changed in stairs and walkways to keep them well lit. Carpets that slide around may need to be tacked down, and cables and cords that run across high traffic areas may need to be moved to a safer place.
