According to the Health and Safety Executive UK, 90% of trips and slips happen when floors are wet, with the cost of workplace self-reported injuries equating to £5.2 billion in the year 2016/17 alone.
It is a common misconception that slip injuries just happen and that little can be done about it, however years of experience now shows that slip prevention can be managed effectively and can cut injuries by 50% or more. A spillage the size of a 50p can spread up to 2m2 when mopped and can take up to seven minutes to completely dry, according to Karcher. The company goes on to say that using a Kärcher scrubber dryer rapidly removes spillages and leaves floors instantly clean, dry and safe.
The BD 80/100 W Bp Pack Classic is the newest addition to the Kärcher scrubber dryer range. This walk-behind machine with traction control provides clear, all round visibility, with a design which focusses on simplicity, reliability and user-friendly operation.
