The Benefits of Workstation Matting

Workstation matting from Commander Warehouse

The benefits of workstation matting can help reduce stress and fatigue caused by long periods of standing on hard surfaces. At Commander Warehouse, we want to help your employees stay happy and healthy. That is why we offer a wide range of workstation matting options that can help your employees focus on their work, rather than achy feet.

What is Workstation Matting?

Warehouse and workstation matting, also known as anti-fatigue mats, work to reduce body fatigue caused by standing on hard surfaces, such as cement floors. This type of matting can be made from a wide variety of different materials including rubber, carpeting, vinyl, or wood.

Why Use Workstation Matting?

Workstation matting can help decrease foot and lower limb discomfort for employees who stand in one position for long periods of time, especially on concrete or cement flooring. Since concrete and cement flooring offer no shock absorption or cushioning, utilizing workstation matting can be a great way to ease pressure points when standing. The anti-fatigue mats work to cause small, regular movements in the legs and feet, which can help improve blood circulation, reducing fatigue and tiredness.

Workstation Matting Benefits

Some of the many benefits of workstation matting include:

1. Protects Against Injuries

Installing workstation matting can help reduce a wide range of musculoskeletal problems that can be developed over time, such as lower limb disorder, postural muscle fatigue, foot problems, joint and spine compression, muscle tension, bone and muscle pain, and varicose veins or circulation problems. Workstation matting can also help lower the risk of future worker compensation claims.

2. Prevents Slips and Falls

Workstation matting is often made from non-slip materials, which can help prevent slips and falls from occurring in the workplace. Drainable workstation mats are especially ideal for wet or oily areas because they ensure that spills dissipate quickly, keeping the floor surface safe.

3. Provides Insulation

Working on concrete warehouse floors in the winter can lead to a loss of productivity, as it can be a cause of discomfort for many employees. Workstation matting provides an effective level of insulation, which can help improve comfort in cold conditions, as well as reduce heating costs in the workplace.
