Stone Maintenance

Bad Weather Safety Recommendations

Wet Flooring Surfaces: All flooring surfaces can become slippery when wet. It is common courtesy as well as prudent management to reduce the hazards caused by wet flooring surfaces.

Spread carpeted runners from each outside door into lobbies and corridors to help dry shoe soles; and change or clean runners as necessary.

Pylons: Place bright-colored “slippery when wet” pylons on walking surfaces in conspicuous places.

Mop or shovel walking surface as often as necessary to remove standing water, ice, or snow. A wet vacuum will also remove water, light snow, and slush efficiently from these surfaces.

Maintenance Instructions: Issue standard instruction to building maintenance personnel and prominently post at all janitorial workstations.
