Checkers Industrial Safety Products is strongly encouraging colleges and universities to take steps that will reduce safety risks on their campuses. Fall always brings a large increase of students and campus activities, which in turn brings an increase in accidents and injuries. Being prepared for these situations can improve student safety and make the school year much more enjoyable for everyone.

“Colleges typically have an elevated amount of activity when the school year starts and keeping their students and staff safe is always a top priority,” said Ray Torres, President and CEO of Checkers. He went on to say, “Organizing special events and large gatherings should include the use of safety products that will keep participants safe while reducing liability concerns for the college or university. We take student safety very seriously at Checkers, and we offer one of the industry’s largest selections of products for both permanent and temporary applications.”

ENTRANCE MATTING
According to studies conducted by the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association, as much as 80% of all soil, dust, contaminants and moisture that enter a building are tracked in on shoes. Checkers offers an assortment of Entrance Matting to provide a safe, dry surface that helps catch this unwanted debris while keeping interior floors cleaner. These modular Entrance Matting tiles improve campus safety and are easy for maintenance personnel to install.

TRAFFIC CONES AND DELINEATORS
To help control pedestrian and vehicle traffic flow on campus and during special events, Checkers offers Traffic Safety Cones and Delineators. They make it easy to create instant barriers that help direct traffic while making everyone aware of potential hazards. These high visibility products are molded with high quality industrial grade materials to withstand any weather conditions.

CABLE PROTECTORS
With record numbers of attendees on college campuses, injuries from trips and falls are a growing concern to university officials. According to OSHA, 15% of all accidental deaths are caused by slips, trips and falls. One of the easiest ways to prevent cables and hoses from becoming trip hazards on campus and during events is to use cable protectors. Available as either lidded or drop-over models, Checkers’ cable protectors reduce trip hazards while organizing your cables and protecting them from damage. These modular systems can be extended to any desired length and greatly improve campus safety.
