Last winter proved to many facility managers that high performance matting systems are key to creating a safer, cleaner work environment. When placed in entryways and high-traffic areas in offices and other facilities, floor matting systems keep soil and moisture outside, thereby boosting safety, occupant health and cleanliness.
In this blog post, we’ll talk about benefits delivered by another type of matting: anti-fatigue matting in Danville IL.
Anti-Fatigue Matting in Danville IL Boosts Productivity, Cuts Costs
This type of floor matting keeps workers more comfortable, productive and healthy. High performance anti-fatigue floor matting creates a healthier work environment that increases employee productivity and, over time, results in significant savings for employers. The mats also cut the risk of accidents caused by slipping, particularly in facilities where employees are working on their feet for prolonged periods of time.
Standing in the same place for a long time can be dangerous to the health of workers. It’s a major cause of routine health problems, like aches and pains, and it can also lead to fatigue. These issues cost employers over $60 billion every year.
Workers who suffer from pains caused by standing all day move more slowly, may need to take frequent breaks to reduce pain and may pause work throughout the day to stretch their legs or rub their tired, sore feet. This decrease in performance is costly. Each week, employers can lose about four hours of work per employee. Add that up over a year and the number is shocking: 23 days lost per worker!
