The General Mat Company has appointed Focus Safety New Zealand to distribute its comprehensive range of entrance, safety, anti-fatigue and ergonomic matting products.

GMC Managing Director Michael Siegle says: “Focus Safety is an ideal organisation to join GMC’s network of distributors, with Focus Safety already having broad experience in safety-related products, including height safety, eye and hearing protection, and environmental spill-control equipment.”

Focus Safety Managing Director Peter Braithwaite adds: “Because sprains or strains of the joints or adjacent muscles now account for 50% of new workers compensation claims, employers and employees alike are very concerned about the impact of slips, falls or conditions underfoot that can put undue stress on the body.

“Especially with an ageing workforce, employers are becoming more aware that there is more to ongoing workplace safety than providing gloves, helmets and glasses, which won’t protect you against a fall or longer-term injury.”
