Anti-Fatigue Mats

Posted on: June 9th, 2010 by

anti-fatigue matsI don’t work in an office where “business attire” would require me to wear hard-soled shoes, and so I have less of a need, at my home office, for anti-fatigue mats than, say, when I worked part-time at a printing facility that housed enormous printers.  We had to stay on our feet for hours, and I can tell you; we had anti-fatigue mats around the printers, and so I have experienced, first hand, how much easier on the feet, lower back, and joints it is to walk and stand on industrial anti-fatigue mats; the company even had “lighter”, non-slip mats in the break rooms and other areas.

Heck, they even had mats in the restrooms to prevent slippage due to water on the floors!  I can only imagine how much more relieving such mats would be to someone who has to stand in a very small area day in and day out, like a cashier, or someone who works behind a bar or concession stand.  My hat comes off for the person(s) who invented anti-fatigue mats.  Bravo!
