Peter At Plus Motors - What are the benefits of anti-fatigue matting?
02, July 2018 — StrataDownload
Peter * the Health and Safety Manager at Plus Motors, a large automotive manufacturer was fed up with constant problems from the shop floor. Gripes of back ache, heel pain and fatigue were becoming a pain for him also. Employee morale was low, productivity static and there was a worrying trend of increased absence . He had to do something.
Peter came onto our stand at a recent exhibition. As he tested our Endura Matting, he knew this was the answer. At work he felt tired after a few minutes of walking on the unyielding concrete flooring and could only imagine what it was like for a whole eight-hour shift .
Endura Matting was springy and responsive, giving his legs energy and bounce. What a transformation this could be for his shop-floor employees
We were quickly at his site demonstrating Endura Matting to shop floor representatives. Endura Matting provided the solution they were seeking .
Anti- fatigue; Endura domes provides a soft bounce as you tread; maximising the ergonomic and anti-fatigue properties .
Non-slip; Endura raised cross hatch pattern makes for a non-slip surface that withstands the pounding of feet, trolleys, forklifts and other wheeled vehicles.
Hard-wearing and Recyclable; Endura is made from a fully recyclable material; a floor that will last the test of time.
Three months on Endura Matting is installed throughout the shop floor. The coloured yellow bevelled edges define work stations and walkways. Endura Flex for where people are standing and Endura Firm for where the trolleys can take completed work right from the workstations – something they had always struggled with .
The moaning about working conditions, health and fatigue has stopped . Morale has improved and absenteeism declined. Managers can concentrate on growing the business and increasing employment and Peter is exploring development opportunities for his team who “Stand Safe” and “Work Comfortably”.
General Manager Steve* comments: -‘Installing Endura Matting has had a noticeable effect on the well-being, morale and productivity of our workforce. Managers now concentrate on staff development and productivity gains instead of covering absence and listening to complaints. Endura Matting has been a great investment for our business’ .
*Names have been changed.
