Tuff Spun anti-fatigue matting, supplied by Plastic Extruders Ltd, is helping keep workers safe and comfortable at The Good Book Company in Epsom, Surrey.
Standing for long periods, particularly on hard floors, induces fatigue and reduces productivity. Cold and damp underfoot conditions will also increase standing discomfort.
Greater awareness of the benefits of anti fatigue floorcoverings is partly the result of Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and Trades Union efforts to improve the welfare of employees. On site research of anti fatigue matting installations confirms a measurable increase in productivity, particularly in the manufacturing, retail and service industries.
Two versions on anti-static matting are now available from international manufacturer Plastic Extruders Ltd. Both products are semi-conductive and give personnel low voltage protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD) which is not only physically unpleasant but can affect or damage electrical components.
