Depending on your industry, you and your employees may benefit from the addition of anti-fatigue mats to your inventory of business equipment. You may already own or rent a variety of floor mats, and if these don’t include anti-fatigue mats, they should. Anti-fatigue mats are thick rubber mats that are designed to be a cushion on hard floors. They often have a very slight slope and a slip-proof surface. They are commonly used on cement flooring that is very hard, but they can be used to benefit people on almost any type of flooring. Scientific studies have actually proven the value of anti-fatigue mats. Read on to learn more about them and why your business needs them.
Improve Comfort and Morale
The best thing about anti-fatigue mats is that they decrease the pain and discomfort associated with standing on hard floors. If you have a warehouse, packing house, or sales floor where people stand for long periods, anti-fatigue mats make that a more comfortable experience. By investing in them and having them available to your employees, you show that you care about them and this can have an immediate effect on morale (not being in pain at work also helps). Plus, an improvement in morale usually correlates to an improvement in employee performance, which helps your business’s bottom line.
Improve Safety And Health
Employee and workplace safety is important to you, and you take it into account in all of your decisions from uniforms to floor mats. Anti-fatigue mats help improve workplace safety. They can help decrease the number of slips and falls, and they make it less painful and potentially dangerous to stand for long periods of time. Anti-fatigue mats help limit joint pain and chronic injury associated with standing. They can also improve overall health, since standing can improve circulation and limit the risk for heart disease, and these mats make standing more comfortable. If you have an office where people are newly adopting ergonomic furniture, like standing desks, anti-fatigue mats can help make that transition less painful. Finally, anti-fatigue mats allow a variety of standing positions ( thanks to the give of the material and the slight slope) and allow users to make micro-movements with their feet and legs that keep them comfortable and happy.
