Anti-Fatigue MatsPosted on: May 11th, 2010 by Charles Pruett
Anti-fatigue mats, if youâ€™re an owner of an industrial company or even commercial business where employees [or you] spend time on their [your] feet. The benefits of sparing oneâ€™s ankles, knees, or backâ€”and not to mention their feetâ€”should be obvious. When employees spend hours on their feetâ€”especially if theyâ€™re standing in one, small area, the effects on those joints and the soles of their feet make them less productive, due to the pain and fatigue incurred from gravity.
If you can reduce that strain with some industrial or commercial mats that absorb weight to compensate over concrete or other hard floors, you win, because your people donâ€™t get so weary. Add the dynamic of water on the floor, and youâ€™ve upped the stakes on potential dangers to your workers. In those instances, you would seek non-slip anti-fatigue mats that channel away water, grease, etc.
