Falling Back, Carefully

Between COVID-19, historic wildfires that ravaged the West Coast, and the need to wear various types of masks for different health concerns, this entire year has been something of a slippery slope. Now, as we move towards winter, it might be literally true on slick and icy roads and pavements.

We’ll set our clocks back to standard time at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 1st. Before then, make sure your team is prepared for dark, damp, potentially dangerous weather that can lead to slip and fall accidents.

Some of the best slip and fall prevention solutions include:

  • XSORB EDGE. Our aggressive absorbent is designed to give you the edge when it comes to cleaning up the toughest spills. XSORB EDGE cuts through liquids, lifting them from the surface to allow a maintenance crew to easily scrub away synthetic oils, petroleum, hydraulic fluids and fuel spills, leaving asphalt and concrete surfaces clean and dry, not slippery. Surfaces are quickly clean and dry, not slippery — welcome news for those early morning joggers and commuters.
  • XSORB Outdoor All-Purpose. Similar to the EDGE but slightly less aggressive, XSORB Outdoor is a heavyweight absorbent that stays down even in slightly windy conditions. Highly absorbent and non-leaching, this non-toxic, environmentally friendly dry spill clean up formula leaves surfaces completely dry, clean, and slip-safe.
  • What if you’re on the road and spring a leak? One of the simplest and smartest products to stow behind your truck seat or cab is a portable spill berm. Designed for compact, rugged spill containment, our portable spill berms are made of durable polymer enhanced with a special coating compound that withstands and remains useable at temperatures as low as -65°F and as high as 130°F. The spill berm will also stand up to hot automotive fluids, and can be pre-fitted with a disposable absorbent pad for fast and easy clean up.

 

So as winter approaches, we hope you’ll breathe a little easier, knowing Impact Absorbents is doing all we can to help keep you, your business, and your customers safe in these trying times. The only thing that should be falling back now is time, and since our digital devices reset automatically, it’ll simply be fall: the season. Enjoy!
