Anti fatigue matting reduces health implications of standing for long periods of time, especially when standing on hard, cold, concrete, workshop floors.
People will benefit form our anti fatigue matting range as these will:
muscular pains in the users feet, legs and lower back
aches and stiffness
the risk of getting varicose veins
circulation problems as anti fatigue mats reduces the chance of blood pooling
the risk of other serious health conditions, such as Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs)
The need of anti-fatigue mats
Aside from the fatigue and tiredness from having to stand all day, it can also have implications on health as our circulatory system can be put under significant pressure, ultimately having negative impacts on the amount of blood that flows around the body. Additionally, there is an increased risk of damage to the joints, orthopaedic feet problems and neck, back and hip pain, which can lead to rheumatic diseases.
Studies on fatigue in the workplace
A recent study has shown that 68% of all people who stand up for long periods of time, in a variety of different working environments, have found that using anti-fatigue mats has had a positive effect on the wellbeing of staff, and a positive impact on their working life.
Another study has shown that 20% of workers in Europe experience muscular pain, nearly 25% suffer back pain and 50% have complained about working in painful/tiring positions which explains the need for more anti-fatigue matting to be used.
Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) is also the most common work related health condition in the EU and it is expected to affect over 50% of the population by 2030. Regularly standing for long periods of time can lead to MSDs, but simple precautions such as using anti-fatigue mats can reduce this risk.
How do anti-fatigue mats work and how do they reduce?
Anti-fatigue mats are vital for any workplace where the workforce stands or walks for long periods of time because they provide a softer, more cushioned surface to stand on, which keeps the user slightly off balance, although almost unnoticeable, which is enough to encourage the user to adjust their feet, subconsciously.
With each subtle foot movement, this leads to the user to evenly distribute the pressure caused by standing up across both legs. Also, with the micro-movements of the feet it has a positive impact on the calf and leg muscles which means that the venous pumps are more active, having a positive affect on blood circulation by pumping more blood back up to your heart, rather than blood pooling in the lower limbs and causing discomfort. As well as pumping more blood around the body, it also increases the amount of oxygen reaching the heart and therefore, fatigue is greatly reduced.
With the body being designed to move, these anti fatigue mats provide subtle foot movements which have a large impact on workers’ posture, blood circulation and stress on joints, especially if you consider the amount of hours people are on their feet at work and for the number of years in their career.
With people being able to stand and walk for longer periods of time, this can also increase the output and efficiency of a workforce as they will be less fatigued, less people getting aches and pains as well as reducing the rate of absenteeism in the workplace.
Benefits of our anti-fatigue mats range
There are more specific benefits to anti-fatigue mats in our range that are not addressed as much as those stated above. Predominantly we have four main benefits of our anti-fatigue matting range; to reduce fatigue in the workplace, to reduce slips and trips from occurring, to stop electrical current and also to stop static electricity.
Within our large stockpile of different anti-fatigue mats, we have mats that are manufactured from different materials and mats that have different surface finishes to create more grip underfoot to increase the safety in the workplace, no matter the environment you work in.
Also available are mats that have a predominant focus on stopping electrical current from passing through the mat. These mats will keep your workforce and workplace safe if you are working with high voltage electricity. These mats should be used at a time when you are working close or with any type of hardware, switchboard or other mechanical equipment to reduce the danger of getting electric shocks. These mats also protect other individuals that may be around you in the workplace too.
The final benefit to our anti-fatigue matting range is those mats that act as an insulator for static electricity. The benefit of these mats is that they protect equipment and/or people from the harmful effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD).
