Why industrial spaces need floor mats?

May. 09, 2018

There are four major ways that anti-slip pvc floor mats can improve an industrial facility.

• Comfort

• Workplace safety

• Anti-static

• Floor protection

Employees in manufacturing and industrial environments generally work on their feet for long periods at a time. These prolonged periods of standing can lead to fatigue, bad posture, and even serious health issues over time. Durable anti-fatigue mats designed for industrial spaces provide workers with enough cushion to reduce the amount of stress put on their body over time.

In addition to making industrial spaces more comfortable for employees, there are matting products that can improve workplace safety. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, “85 percent of worker’s compensation claims are attributed to employees slipping on slick floors.” The use of high-visibility floor mats can help employees identify areas where extra caution is needed, while anti-slip surfaces and tape provide an extra level of traction to keep workers on their feet. Wet area mats can also be designed to allow slippery substances to drain through the mat, making it easy for employees to walk around the work area.

Industrial floor mats can protect more than just people. The presence of electrical equipment and products is common in many industrial facilities. Electrostatic discharge can cause billions of dollars in losses each year, so anti-static mats are used to reduce the risk of any electrical surges that could damage any sensitive equipment or manufactured materials.

Of course, the floor itself needs some protection as well. Nobody wins when heavy equipment hits the floor. The impact can damage both the equipment and the floor itself. A heavy-duty floor mat can serve as a protective layer between the floor and everything else, shielding it from problematic cracks and scuffs that can lead to bigger issues over time.
