If you are a business owner or manager the quickest, cheapest and easiest way to get your employees to work harder, make less mistakes and be safer at the same time may be antifatigue matting.Â
Anti fatigueÂ mats make the workplace more productive and safer by:
1. When workers are standing in one place for long periods of time back pain often results. Anti fatigue mats can eliminate or reduce the back pain and stress caused by standing for long periods of time.
2. Productivity is always a factor in the workplace. Fatigue mats can increase productivity by providing comfort to workers while they are doing their job.
3. When people are tired they tend to make more mistakes and more injuries often occur. Â An anti fatigue floorÂ mat can help prevent these mistakes, injuries and fatigue.
4. A padded mat or runner for workers to stand on can also provide unintended benefits, like a reduction in the glass and material that breaks when anything falls on the mats instead of the hard floor.
5. Antifatigue Matting at work will also help reduce the slip and fall injuries.Â In fact, many insurance companies promote matting as one of the best solutions to slip and fall problems.
So, if you are an employee or owner of a factory, manufacturing facility, retail store or any other workplace where you or your employees are standing on your feet for long periods of time, anti fatigue matting is for you. Â In short, these mats are the quickest and most affordable way to increase safety, reduce injuries and relieve employee fatigue and stress.

Heated footrests provide remarkable, therapeutic value to the soleâ€¦the sole of the feet, that is! If youâ€™re an employer, you surely have explored the value of utilizing ant-fatigue mats for your employees, or even yourself; but if you havenâ€™t brushed up on the benefits of anti-fatigue mats in awhile, you can bolster your confidence in what was surely a wise decision you made some time ago to invest in your team membersâ€™ performance and well being.
The high-caliber of todayâ€™s anti-fatigue mats can make all the difference in extending your peopleâ€™s endurance well beyond what they might achieve, left unaided.Â But sometimes, even the barrier of anti-fatigue mats isnâ€™t quite sufficient while standing on, for example, cold, hard, concrete floors.Â Itâ€™s at times and in conditions such as these when itâ€™s not difficult to justify industrial boot warmer mats, or even the ergonomic model [pictured here], more appropriate for under the bossâ€™s desk!

Most of the time when we think of anti-fatigue mats, we normally picture heavy-duty, thick, non-slip rubberized mats with either holes to capture moisture, or some sort of foam variation designed to reduce pain and fatigue in the feet, ankles, legs and backs of employees in an either industrial setting (like a postal worker at a station for hours on end) or perhaps in a commercial environment.Â But did you know there are grounded, electro-static discharge anti-fatigue mats for use around computers or other sensitive electronics that can be damaged by static discharge by a workers touch?
These mats are called anti-static mats, and can protect expensive computer equipment from being damaged by static electricity; these mats, similar to more common anti-fatigue mats, should not be used beneath machinery or computer equipment, but immediately in front so as to absorb the static discharge when the individual steps onto the mat, just before touching the [sensitive] equipment.

Anti-fatigue mats reduce strain and fatigue on ankle joints, knees, lower back, and ease the effects gravity can have on the human frame, especially while standing on hard floors such as concrete whether bare or tiled.Â And since anti-fatigue mats come in all sorts of styles, serve all sorts of purposesâ€”whether solely anti-fatigue, or providing anti-slip propertiesâ€”you can surely find what you need for your business, industrial or commercial.
Did you know there are even anti-fatigue mats especially designed for specific industries, like the Stand-N-Weld industrial anti-fatigue mat [pictured], for welders?Â The point is, you donâ€™t have to settle for just any ordinary mat when youâ€™re looking to preserve your people, ensure their safety, and improve their performance.

Commercial anti-fatigue mats are an investment; and a wise one, at that.Â Ask anyone who has had to stand or move about in a single or restricted space for many hours, day in and day out, on hard floors, without the use of an anti-fatigue matâ€”whether theyâ€™ve experienced them before or notâ€”if theyâ€™d like to have an anti-fatigue mat beneath his or her feet versus the bare floor, and you wonâ€™t see such a person pause to consider if he or she would prefer the mats!
Anyone who has ever had to stand still on a hard floor for very long, in hard-soled shoes, or even barefoot can tell you it would be preferable to wear some shoes with a shock absorptive sole, and could probably guess at what the anti-fatigue benefits might be!Â The great thing about most anti-fatigue mats is they serve multiple purposes and functions from back and joint relief, to slip protection, to protection against falls.

When SoftCarpetTM first came out with their original, carpeted, interlocking carpet tiles, the world of trade show flooring was set on a collision course with greatness.Â Foam-bottomed, carpeted tops, variety of colors, tiles of manageable sizesâ€¦the possibilities went from drastically limited, from toting around mats of various sizes and trying to make them fit into a given space at a trade show or expo, to precision fulfillment of needs!
And for those who donâ€™t want a carpeted look, there’s other foam and anti-fatigue flooring that will surely fit whatever the need might be.Â For example, if youâ€™re hosting or participating in a gun show or other outdoor sports or hunting related event, camouflage flooring will be perfect for such events as well. Whatever the event, thereâ€™s sure to be a custom flooring that will fill the need.

When youâ€™re looking for safety anti-fatigue mats for your workplace or other need, itâ€™s good to know there are plentiful supplies and varieties to choose from; you just need to take some time to view your options and think a bit about the size of the space where youâ€™ll place the mat(s) and choose according to how much traffic the mats will get each day. Diamond Plate safety mats have been a longtime favorite due to their durability and practical use, while marbleized rubber anti-fatigue mats are fantastic if you are looking for something without a textured surface.Â Of course, for heavier, industrial applications, where there are likely to be spills, or moisture underfoot, you would want a heavily textured safety mat that will keep moisture, mud, or other impurities off the mats surface.Â Whatever the case, thereâ€™s a safety anti-fatigue mat to suit every need.
