40% of workers in the U.S. suffer from workplace fatigue and it is costing their companies billions. Fatigue reduces work performance mainly by interfering with concentration and increasing the time needed to accomplish tasks.
For workers who stand for most of the day, leg and back pain caused by hard floors lead to fatigue and eventually decreased productivity.
What can employers do to relieve such strain? Studies have concluded that anti fatigue matting significantly cuts down on worker strain thereby increasing productivity. In addition to strain relief, antifatigue mats enhance the traction in a work area helping to prevent slips and falls.
