Wet Dripping Umbrellas can be a real problem. If you have a regular flow of visitors coming in from the rain, then their umbrellas leave a trail around your premises.
Carrying a wet umbrella is like walking around carrying a dripping tap. Water ends up everywhere that it shouldn’t. It trails across your floor either making tiled or wooden floors slippery, or soaking into your carpets, or dripping onto your sofas and other furniture.
Not only is this unsightly but it is also dangerous. The most common cause of injury to employees and visitors is as a result of slipping or tripping. Sadly, today’s compensation culture means that claims can run into thousands of pounds. Not only do you need to have systems in place to reduce this risk, but you also have to be seen to be doing something about it. Prevention is better than cure, so rather than have a member of staff constantly on duty with a mop to clean up the mess, why not offer a more simple more modern solution to the problem.
The answer is a Drip Slip Stop Umbrella Bagging Machine, sometimes our customers call them Umbrella Wrapping Machines, but we don’t mind. The important thing is that not only are you going to do something to minimise the risk of staff and visitors slipping, but you are also seen to be doing something. You are proving that you are serious about health and safety and that you are going that extra mile to ensure the safety of those who visit your premises.
