The risk of an accident increases when there is fatigue at work. Fatigue can also result in a reduction in productivity or employee absence. Anti-fatigue mats can be used to alleviate the strain on the feet, back, and legs of those who are forced to stand for extended periods on a hard surface at work.
How Anti-Fatigue does mats work?
You can reduce fatigue by making it easier to stand on.
A smoother surface encourages the movement of the legs. With feet adapting to maintain balance, it improves posture. The contraction and relaxation of the leg muscles help increase blood flow around the body, this results in less fatigue.
Moving your legs helps to maintain muscle movement. Regular movement also helps to reduce headaches and strain the back. Rubber mats on the floor offer additional anti-fatigue benefits by protecting workers from cold surfaces. This is not good for the body as it can lower body temperature and place more pressure on the heart to keep it warm.
