Benefits of Workstation Mats
1. Fight worker fatigue. Fatigue is one of the most dangerous things to occur in a commercial manufacturing facility. Muscle tension, cramps, and loss of focus are among the key contributors to workplace accidents. Risk is elevated when the facility includes heavy machinery, electrical equipment, and industrial chemicals. It’s important to remember that a tired employee is not just a risk to him or herself; fatigue related accidents have the potential to cause serious injury to coworkers as well.
Workstation mats feature a unique construction that helps dissolve muscle tension, cramps, and strain through the feet, legs, core, and shoulders. By providing a cushion-like standing surface, these mats engage the muscles of the body in a subtle yet highly therapeutic way. With anti-fatigue workstation mats, employees can perform for hours without feeling tired or losing focus.
2. Control liquid spills. Sprays and other liquid treatments are sometimes a vital part of the production process. However, the use of liquids at workstations and along assembly lines opens the door for slips, falls, and injuries. Grease and other oil-based liquids are most dangerous since they are the toughest to clean from floor surfaces.
By installing floor mats at workstations, facilities can protect employees from potential slip and fall accidents resulting from oil and/or liquid accumulation. Some mats feature a special “grit” surface to enhance traction, while others use drainage slots or holes to channel liquids below the mat and away from the walking surface.
3. Improve walkway traction. Semi-wet and wet areas are not the only places where more traction is needed, however. Many workstations involve lifting, moving, or controlling heavy elements of the production process. From product parts to machines and wheeled carts, there are many moving pieces to the production facility puzzle.
Mats for workstations improve traction in these areas, providing a dry and gritty surface that delivers more grip than uncovered floors.
4. Improve workstation visibility. Some areas of the production facility benefit greatly from having clearly marked workstation standing areas and walkways. Workers can more easily and safely navigate workstations when important areas and routes are clearly marked with bright colors. Workstation mats are available with bright safety colors along the edges to assist in keeping workers safe in dangerous environments.
Product Recommendation: See Hog Heaven Anti-Fatigue Mat above, available in 4 OSHA-approved safety colors.
5. Reduce bacteria. There’s no room for bacteria in today’s commercial production facilities. Bacterial infestations are dangerous to workers, and they can ruin production runs. Food production facilities, in particular, must focus on preventing the formation of mold, mildew, and other bacteria within production facilities.
Some workstation floor mats feature a unique antimicrobial treatment to prevent the formation of bacteria and other microorganisms. This feature varies by model, so be sure to check with the retailer to ensure the workstation mat has the treatment.
7. Protect floor surfaces. Workers are not the only ones to benefit from workstation mats. Like other varieties of commercial mats, floor protection is a fundamental benefit provided by workstation matting. Without mats, floor surfaces are directly exposed to damage from liquid spills, chemical abrasion, moving machinery, and falling objects. Various matting thicknesses are available to provide basic-to-tough protection, depending on facility needs.
6. Reduce insurance premiums. In some cases, anti-fatigue workstation mats may reduce insurance premiums.
