Do quality mats improve employee work experience?

It’s hard to see how basic floor mats can do more than just keep people from dragging dirt or mud from the curb into your pristine office or store floors. But believe it or not, the right floor mats can help improve employee work experience – and in more ways than one, too!

Here are some ways quality mats improve work experience:

Improved Workspace Comfort

This is especially important for workers who stand on their feet for extended periods. It can take a toll on the body – especially the lower back, legs, and feet. There are many conditions to worry about, and even more, workdays to lose from this type of work fatigue. The right floor mats can help with that. 

Anti-fatigue floor mats are special floor mats engineered to address lower extremity pain by promoting micro-movements – hardly discernible movements of the feet while standing on the floor mats. This creates an even distribution of weight even when the person does not notice or do anything about it. And with proper weight distribution, plus improved circulation from the movements, the strain and fatigue are greatly minimized. They come in different sizes and specifications, to suit different types of workspaces.

Improved Cleanliness and Hygiene

A clean working space promotes productivity and floor mats are an essential element in keeping your floors clean. It goes beyond entrance mats and scraper mats!

The quality, cleanliness, and maintenance of your mats can also prevent dirty floors from contaminating other areas of your facility. Wet and moist floors are a paradise for germs, bacteria, and fungi. The right mats prevent an accumulation of liquids on your floors. They also allow people who enter your facility to more easily clean off their shoes and keep the floors clean.

Improved Safety

Slip-and-fall accidents account for a huge chunk of at-work employee injuries. Your employees should be able to move about with ease and peace of mind, knowing that there are no slippery areas, curled floor mats, or unsafe floor spaces that can put their lives at risk. Installing the right high-traction floor mats can reassure them that they are safe from slip-and-fall accidents. It also shows that you care about their well-being enough to put a premium on their safety.
