Transparent Tiles Allow Cord Inspection

Challenge

A parts manufacturer had an OSHA inspection and received numerous citations because they couldn’t prove that their electrical cords and hoses were in safe condition as they were running under mats and wooden platforms.  

Solution

Ergo Advantage installed their interlocking modular matting solution using lines of clear 6” tiles in tracks at regular intervals along the floor. The organization was able to run all their cords and hoses through the transparent portion of the matted surface so that condition of cords was clearly visible.

  • The company received a passing grade on their next OSHA audit.
  • Installing the mats also gave them the opportunity to clean up the area and have defined work areas for different functions. Their continuous improvement committee is brainstorming on other projects utilizing Ergo Advantage tiles.
  • The employees have mentioned how much better they feel standing on the ergonomic matting.

    This was such an easy solution to stay in compliance and has the added benefit of providing our employees with an amazing anti-fatigue surface to stand on.”
