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.
