Why Anti Fatigue Mats are Needed
Did you realise with increasing discomfort there is also an associated drop in productivity and general dissatisfaction with the job.
Employees standing on good quality antifatigue matting experience vastly reduced levels of discomfort and fatigue, studies have shown this is as much as 50% (Mark Redfern, Ergonomist at the Centre of Ergonomics at the University of Michigan).
Studies go on to show that a person productivity standing for 8 hours on a concrete factory floor by 33% and conversely a person standing on a quality antifatigue mat increases productivity by up to 50% (OSHA).
Different solutions exist for different requirements if products are to be used less frequently, then save your money and look to antifatigue products made with PVC, as they will be cheaper, however in harsher environments and greater usage spend a little more and invest in genuine rubber you’ll certainly reap the benefits and your teams will thank you for them.
