Industrial safety matting products are specifically designed to help improve ergonomics and safety in the workplace. Anti fatigue matts are widely used in work environments where prolonged periods of standing is required.
Standing on hard and often cold surfaces is a major cause of health related problems in the workplace. The right use of industrial matting can help combat employee fatigue and in turn increase productivity.
Standing for extended periods of time may cause muscles to constrict, which in turn can reduce blood flow to the limbs. Following this joint and muscle pain will occur. This will result in conditions of leg and lower back discomfort. The benefits of safety and anti-fatigue floor matts include the cushioning effect of the ergonomically designed mat. This cushioning effect allows constant micro movements of feet and legs which in turn help to reduce the effect of blood pooling in the lower limb areas.
Safety and anti-fatigue mats are outstanding products, capable of improving workers productivity during long periods of standing. The ultimate result in this investment is less worker fatigue and an increase in productivity. These are used in many industrial and commercial applications including production and assembly lines, food processing areas, retail counters and store and logistics.
Equally important in reducing workplace related injuries is the use of anti-slip matting in workplaces where there are potential slip and trip hazards. Slips and falls are responsible for a significant percentage of reportable workplace injuries. These workplace injuries are commonly caused by;
oily/wet/slippery workplace floors and surfaces
uneven surfaces and unexpected changes in floor level
slippery surfaces caused by dry and dusty contaminants
All of our anti-fatigue mats and anti-slip matting are designed to be safe for any most environments, with large perforations to make cleaning easier. Thanks to these features, and their sturdy rubber design, worker safety mats can be employed in most work space, including clean rooms, food preparation areas and wet areas.
