Besides keeping your employees safe in the workplace, you should want to keep them as comfortable as possible within reason. An investment in a safe and comfortable environment can yield positive results keeping your employees healthy, happy and productive! Let’s take a look at the facts, problem and solution when considering anti-fatigue mats from in the workplace:
Whether you work in a warehouse on an assembly line requiring constant movement or walking, or if you have a bricks and mortar office, you will have employees enter and leave your building. And unless you run a tight ship and your employees are chained to their desk or equipment, it’s a good chance they may also visit the restroom, break room or just go outside for some fresh air.
If you aren’t providing a proper balance of softness and support with your mats, detrimental effects to the body may develop. Results may lead to fatigue, poor work quality, absenteeism and even termination.
Investing in Anti-Fatigue Mats can make a huge impact on your business’ productivity:
a. Matting Softness: Benefits include cushioning and weight distribution. Quality cushioning will help reduce the impact on the joints, while proper weight distribution reduces pressure points and unnatural foot position.
b. Matting Support: The amount of “push, “resilience” or “bounce” the mat gives back when compressed is very important on the body. Resilient matt support will cut down on muscle fatigue and actually help return the energy back to the employee.
By utilizing mats with the proper softness and support needed you are providing an environment conducive to positive energy and high quality workflow. Let one of our experts at Pilgrim Mats help determine the areas of your business that will benefit most from Anti-Fatigue mats and turn your business into an “Anti-Fatigue” environment.
