5 Reasons Your Business Needs Anti-Fatigue Mats

reasons your business needs anti-fatigue mats

When you think about dangerous activities, standing probably doesn’t come to mind. And yet, prolonged standing has been linked to health issues like heart disease, chronic venous disease, lower back pain, neck and shoulder pain, and muscle fatigue.

If your employees have jobs that require them to stand in one place for long periods of time, then they may be affected by one or more of these short-term or long-term health problems, which in turn affects their job satisfaction and productivity.

Fortunately, there’s a simple and cost-effective solution that can help your employees combat the negative effects of prolonged standing: anti-fatigue mats. These ergonomic mats are specially-designed to ease the stress of standing and promote overall health and well-being. Here are just 5 reasons your business needs them.

1. Anti-fatigue mats increase employee well-being

Employee pain and fatigue leads to job dissatisfaction, which inevitably results in high employee turnover and more sick and leave days. Anti-fatigue mats help solve these problems by making the work experience more comfortable. The unique design and material of these mats promotes increased blood circulation and encourages micro-movements in the legs, providing valuable physical support that ultimately reduces fatigue.

2. Anti-fatigue mats lead to higher productivity

Physical discomfort can be a huge distraction. If your employees feel constant physical strain while they’re at work, they’re unable to give their all to the tasks at hand. Anti-fatigue mats relieve these physical burdens, freeing your staff to do the best work possible at a faster pace.

3. Anti-fatigue mats reduce the risk of slip-and-fall accidents

Any area of your business that gets large amounts of foot traffic is a prime location for a slip-and-fall accident to occur. Anti-fatigue mats provide valuable traction, reducing the chances that you’ll get slapped with a lawsuit from an employee who fell on your property.

4. Anti-fatigue mats protect your floors

Your employees’ shoes aren’t exactly the cleanest, and over time, the dirt and moisture from the bottoms of their shoes will affect the quality of your floors. With anti-fatigue mats, you protect your floors from damage due to dirt, moisture and other contaminants.

5. Anti-fatigue mats can decrease damage to your property

Not only do these mats protect your floors, but they can protect other items that are important to your business. For example, if you own or manage a restaurant, your staff runs the risk of dropping breakable dishes and glass on the hard floor. Cushioned mats can prevent these items from breaking. If you run a retail business, then anti-fatigue mats prevent possible damages to your merchandise.
