OSHA and NIOSH suggest using anti-fatigue floor mats for applications that require prolonged standing. This can also include walking back and forth in the same areas where an anti-fatigue mat would not get in the way or promote a hazard. Anti-fatigue mats reduces fatigue in the lower extremities and promotes better circulation. Applications such as hospitals, grocery stores, manufacturing and production plants, line work, electricians, etc. have experienced immediate relief and benefits of the specifically engineered anti-fatigue floor mats.
