Understanding the Benefits of Anti-Fatigue Floor Mats

Floor mats are all around us yet they typically go unnoticed.  But for those that spend the majority of their day standing, anti-fatigue floor mats can prevent injury and provide comfort.  Anti-fatigue floor mats are ergonomic floor mats designed to provide optimum comfort while simultaneously avoiding stress and injury.

Anti-fatigue floor mats can be manufactured with a high density rubber surface to prevent slippage.  Many anti-fatigue floor mats are specially designed to be highly resistant to chemicals, grease and other dangerous materials.  In addition many mats are static dissipative and safe for use in computer rooms and electrical part manufacturing facilities.

Anti-fatigue floor mats from Consolidated Plastics are available in a wide range of options including options that are OSHA accepted with a yellow striped border.  Safety and comfort is just the beginning.  Anti-fatigue floor mats also:

  • Reduce stress on the human body & lessen the pain. Rather than standing on hard, solid surfaces like tile or concrete, workers stand on thick, flexible floor mats. When that extra flexibility is added, much of the stress previously applied on a person’s body by the hard floor is relieved, resulting in a less painful working environment.
  • Promote better blood circulation. Anti-Fatigue floor mats reduce stress on a person’s joints and muscles allowing blood to flow more evenly and regularly throughout the feet and legs, thus reducing the risk of a loss in circulation.
  • Reduce slips and falls. Though this is a characteristic of most mats, Anti-Fatigue floor matting is no different.  Workers will be much safer working on mats (compared to working on tile or concrete) because of the extra grip shoes have on the mats. If a fall should occur, thick mats can help break the fall and lessen the chance of injury.
  • Finally, anti-fatigue mats are comfortable. Comfortable workers are happy workers, and happy workers do the best work.
