Do you know the number one type of accident among people visiting a golf course?
Slips, Trips and Falls!
In a presentation given at a PGA conference, a Travelers Insurance study titled, “Safety on the Fairways”, was referenced. In the study, 33% of visitors involved in an accident on a golf course attributed their misfortune to slips, trips and falls. Think the mishaps are reserved for visitors?
The number two type of accident for employees was… you guessed it – Slips, Trips and Falls! Seeing a trend here?
Safety on golf courses is just as important for visitors as it is course employees. PEM Golf Course Matting provides a safe surface to cut down on the risk of accidents. The unique looping design and textured surface provide a slip-resistant non-skid surface for golfers and employees alike. The porous construction allows water to pass through, keeping the surface dry and allowing for moisture to evaporate. This is key for applications on wooden bridges and steps, where algae growth is a concern.
Think your existing surfaces are skid-free? Have you checked them lately? Many surfaces become slippery over time due to the wear-and-tear of regular use. Even gritty concrete can become worn and slick – especially when wet! Carefully review your existing surfaces under all conditions to determine your greatest risks for slips, trips and falls.
PEM Golf Course Matting is the perfect solution for cart paths, stairs, ramps, bridges and more. No matter the application – PEM will keep you safely grounded.
