  • How does an anti-fatigue mat works? Does it really make you feel comfortable?

    Yes, they do make you comfortable…

    Many persons might stand on a cold hard floor in the situation there was no floor covering (we all know what it feels like and have maybe never considered that it could be a whole lot better!!)

    Cold hard floors leave you with cold feet, achy knees, back pain, and increasing tiredness and here’s why.

    Anti fatigue mats and how they work

    Anti fatigue matting is usually made of rubber or plastic, which is warmer than concrete and the ground, therefore raising your feet from the cold, and stopping the problems that are caused by cold legs and knee joints. It acts as an insulator between body heat and the floor. This stops the heat from your body going into the floor. Therefore making you feel better and also allowing to use your energy for working and not creating more heat to keep warm.

    Rubber and plastic are softer materials, also supportive, making feet comfortable at the same time as supporting your legs and back, therefore reducing knee and back pain. Simply soft substances do not have anti-fatigue properties for persons standing, as they are not supportive enough (imagine standing on a mattress all day!!)

    Anti fatigue matting is also proven in statistics to reduce staff absenteeism and to improve output in factories, simply because persons are provided more comfortable working conditions. This is of huge benefit and importance to business owners.

    Thinking this sound good, but not sure which mat is best for you?

  • What is the importance of anti fatigue matting?

    This is an interesting questions and has many answers. I can give some important benefits of anti fatigue matting...

    Many persons would usually stand on a cold hard floor in the situation there was no floor covering (we all know what it feels like and have maybe never considered that it could be a whole lot better!!)

    Situations like;

    • Standing in a work shop fixing something at workbench
    • Packing parcels in the warehouse
    • Walking around and picking goods in a 3PL centre
    • or in the home environment standing on the tiled floor at the kitchen sink

    To busy to stop and think, you have cold feet, achy knees, back pain, and feel tired. After all we are getting things done and so it seems to be going good.

    But it can be much better…

    Anti fatigue matting is usually made of rubber or plastic, which is warmer than concrete and the ground, therefore raising your feet from the cold, and stopping the problems that are caused by cold legs and knee joints. It acts as an insulator between body heat and the floor. Important, as this stops the heat from your body going into the floor.  Therefore making you feel better and also allowing to use your energy for working and not creating more heat to keep warm.

    Rubber and plastic are softer materials, also supportive, making feet comfortable at the same time as supporting your legs and back, therefore reducing knee and back pain. This is an important point as simply soft substances do not have anti-fatigue properties for persons standing, as they are not supportive enough (imagine standing on a mattress all day!!)

    Anti fatigue matting is also proven in statistics to reduce staff absenteeism and to improve output in factories, simply because persons are provided more comfortable working conditions. This is of huge benefit and importance to business owners.

    It is also an important way to show how you care about others. As a business owner you could really improve the worker comfort by installing anti fatigue matting around the warehouse and operations, even at the sales desk and reception to show how you appreciate your staff.

    Housewives hugely benefit from having a suitable mat at the kitchen sink.

    Not sure which mat is best for your application?

    We have a helpful online chat box, that give immediate feedback on questions.

    I can also make some recommendation for some situations that have been matched to the right anti fatigue mat….

  • How To Keep Employees & the Public Safe From Slips, Trips and Falls

    Slips, trips and falls are the most common cause of workplace injuries in the UK, with an average of six accidents happening every day.

    While only some result in fatalities, they still take a toll on employee morale and productivity with about 1.5 million working days lost due to employees taking days off to recover from slips, trips and falls. And such falls, slips and trips are almost always entirely preventable.

    What’s more, it costs very little to prevent such accidents from happening.
    As an employer, you have a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of your employees and visitors. That includes carrying out a risk assessment and where necessary taking steps to control slip, trip and fall risks. For example, using doormats to stop rainwater being tracked into your building and making the floor slippery.

    Comments from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)

    To conduct a risk assessment, consider what risks in your workplace could lead to slips, trips or falls, recommends the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

    Then decide what suitable and effective control measures will stop such accidents happening and put those control measures into practice, says the HSE.

    “Concentrate on the real risks – those that are most likely to cause harm,” says the HSE. “Think about how accidents could happen and who might be harmed.”

    You can do this by:

    • Asking your employees what they think are hazards in your workplace. After all, they may notice things that you don’t. They might also have suggestions on how you can control such risks.
    • Using the HSE’s Hazard Checklist to identify and fix potential hazards that could otherwise cause slips, trips and falls both inside and outside your premises.
    Here are some of the ways the HSE suggests you can prevent slips, trips and falls in and around your premises:
    • Use entrance matting
    • Use anti-slip mats
    • Make sure spills are cleaned up
    • Repair machinery or building leaks
    • Improve tasks to minimise spills
    • Have regular plant and equipment maintenance carried out
    • Ensure that you use cleaning methods that are suitable for the flooring you have
    • Dry smooth floors are cleaning or keep people away from those areas until the floors are dry
    • Establish plans for routine cleaning and dealing with spills
    • Make sure the detergent used to clean floors is mixed at the correct concentration
    • Replace loose, damaged or worn flooring
    • Replace flooring that becomes too slippery when wet
    • Ensure that lighting is sufficient and that steps and slopes are visible
    • Make sure that walkways and work areas are free from obstructions
    • Make sure your employees wear the right footwear particularly if they work in areas that are likely to get wet or slippery.

  • How do I choose the right anti-fatigue mat?

    Here at Everymat we are often asked this question, so here is a brief post covering some of the key points.

    There are many types of mats that are sold as "anti-fatigue" mats, but our products are specially designed to suit particular purposes.  When choosing a mat, consider the following:

    Know the purpose of the mat. Anti-slip or other mats are not always the same as anti-fatigue mats, although some mats will have multiple properties.  Choose a mat that matches your need best, or ask one of our staff which will best suit your situation.

    The thickness of the mat. Softer and thicker may not always be better. Choose a mat that provides some elasticity, but at the same time is not so soft that a person feels they cannot stand comfortably.    We do have product samples available to assist with this.

    Know the environment the mat will be used in.   Particles on the floor and chemicals being used in the area can affect certain materials.   Please tell our staff about any concerns you have.

    Mats should not slip, or create a trip hazard.   It is important to tell us the type of flooring mats will be placed on, so that we can suggest the right backing material.  It is also interesting to note, that heavier, larger mats are much less likely to more around that lighter grade mats in smaller sizes.

    Mats should have sloped edges, so they are less of a trip hazard, although the mat edge that is against a wall or work bench works better with a non-sloped edge.   We provide plan drawings for larger projects, making our clients confident the layout will work before the product is purchased.

    • Black matting with yellow hazard border, is preferred, so they highly visible on the floor even from a distance, or for persons that are partially sighted.
    • Mats may need to be cleaned. In some areas, such as food preparation, being able to adequately clean the mats will be important.

    Quite a lot to think about?   Don’t let this delay your decision to benefit  - just tell one of friendly team, what you are looking for, and we will come up with some helpful suggestions.

    We look forward to assisting you.
