Recently a worker was seriously injured when he was struck by a moving vehicle in the yard at his workplace. As the driver was manoeuvring to park behind a stationary vehicle, the floor mat slipped and the accelerator became stuck, causing his vehicle to move forward and pin the worker between both vehicles.
Consider the suitability and compatibility of rubber floor mats in vehicles with vinyl floor covering. In order to maintain a safe workplace, these types of mats should not be installed unless the mats can be safely secured to prevent uncontrolled movement while the vehicle is being operated.
