We recently installed some of our anti-fatigue mats behind the counter at a local Yoga Studio in Yaletown. Anti-fatigue mats are seeming to become more and more popular with the increasing awareness of health and wellness in the work place. This is a simple way to improve morale and help keep your employees more comfortable. Anti-fatigue mats absorb the shock from walking and this cushioning effect also reduces foot fatigue. According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety Website regardless of the quality of shoes and quality of the floor covering, standing itself can cause tiredness after an entire working day. Along with anti-fatigue mats, for optimal working conditions you should also take footwear into consideration as well as changing up the position the worker is standing in, if it's at all possible for the worker to have a stool around to rest on from time to time this will drastically decrease fatigue in the legs and feet.
