Our goal is to build a comprehensive network of organizations, associations, unions, and other stakeholders impacted by the growing number of slips, trips, and falls.
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Maryland-based Eagle Mat and Floor Products spreads awareness for the formation of a new floor safety organization. Founded by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), the new Slip-Fall Coalition aims to advance the discussion on slips and falls in the workplace, at home, and in the public.
"Our goal is to build a comprehensive network of organizations, associations, unions, and other stakeholders impacted by the growing number of slips, trips, and falls," explains Russell Kendzior in a news announcement about the new coalition earlier this year. "The problem cannot be solved by the NFSI alone, but NFSI will serve as a catalyst to advance the discussion."
For over 30 years, Eagle Mat has advanced a similar message throughout the Maryland community, providing on-site flooring and safety mat consultation to help organizations retrofit facilities with products designed to reduce slips, trips, and falls. In 2011, the family owned business launched Eaglemat.com to offer product sales nationally, as well as provide a virtual platform for the publication of new product reviews, facility management case studies, and accident prevention best practices.
Most recently, the Eagle Mat Blog published a case study by American insurance company CNA on new protocols for preventing slips, trips, and falls in commercial settings.
"Much of our current customer base consists of local facility managers, property owners, engineers, and a variety of other small-to-large sized businesses," says Mike Blumberg, found of Eagle Mat. "Through Eaglemat.com, we see a significant opportunity to fulfill the needs of additional customers worldwide."
