In January of 2009, the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine wrote that an overwhelming 40% of American workers suffered from workplace fatigue. The published study, along with several others, demonstrated another perhaps more alarming connection. That connection shows worker fatigue costs businesses several billion dollars each year due to corresponding declines in concentration and performance. Our Fight Fatigue campaign served to spread awareness for this statistic and promote the most cost effective means of reducing it: Anti-fatigue mats. It is our pleasure to announce that the sale was a great success, and we are excited to extend a warm welcome each of our new clients!

We welcome readers to shop our commercial floor mat online store for an unparalleled selection of fully customizable safety matting and other property management products. For those interested in additional information regarding worker fatigue and methods of prevention, the article below has been published to assist in hedging against the danger and fiscal costs of fatigue in the workplace.
