Employees working within the restaurant industry are more often than not standing for long hours, thus running the risk of injuring their legs and also experiencing muscle discomfort. Restaurant & food service employees alike can benefit from the implementation of anti-fatigue mats in the kitchen, host stand, dishwashing stand as well as many other areas. These durable, rubber mats will not only promote health and wellness but will foster productivity.
We have outlined the essential benefits of anti-fatigue mats in the restaurant industry:
- Anti-fatigue mats come with unparalleled draining ability. Never worry about standing water again with holes that safely drain stagnant water.
- The Non-slip surface of anti-fatigue mats prevents slips and falls associated with kitchen injuries. The durable, rubber material will protect your employees whether they are standing, in a rush or making multiple trips in and out of the kitchen.
- Anti-fatigue mats offer superior comfort for employees standing up for hours on end. While employees are standing for long periods of time, there are more opportunities for them to injure their back and legs while increasing muscle discomfort. Give your employees some relief, with a softer, thicker surface versus standing on the floor, allowing more comfortability for long periods of standing work. If employees feel less discomfort, they will be more likely to work productively and focus on the task at hand.
- Anti-fatigue mats protect the floor surface underneath them. The rubber material is designed to absorb the shock of impact from feet and other heavier objects when they are dropped on the mat. Your floor will be protected from falling debris and harder materials such as utensils, pots and other cookware. With the simple addition of a commercial anti-fatigue mat, you can reduce your overhead operations costs associated with floor maintenance.
