Why is ergonomic matting important?

Ergomats are designed to work with the human body to ease the tasks that the body performs. For a standing work station, these mats are of critical importance:

  • Reduces and eliminates short-term fatigue and discomfort
  • Prevents the accumulation of long-term negative effects of strain and stress injury
  • Reduces employee absenteeism and sickness

What it means for the employer?

  • Increased productivity and worker morale
  • Decreases in sick leave, workers compensation claims and substandard production due to operator inattention caused by fatigue.
  • Overall: Increased earnings!

There are so many mats on the market, why are Ergomats still the best anti-fatigue and ergonomic mat in the world.

Let’s list some of the reasons why:

  • Ergomats are always beveled and will never curl, thus no tripping hazard
  • Ergomat can make any shape, any size – always to suit your needs
  • Nitrile and Hygiene mats are USDA certified; can be used in food and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in operating rooms, since they are closed cell products (non-porous) no contamination issues!Nitril and Hygiene mats can also be autoclaved (sponge-like mats should NOT be used in operating rooms, labs, and food processing plants)
  • Ergomats are available in multiple colors to prevent cross contamination
  • All Ergomat mats are Class 5 approved; some are even class 2
  • Erogmats are also offered in ESD, conductive, and anti-static versions

Erogmat is different from other ergonomic floor matting competitors

Competitors have issues such as:

  • Quick loss of anti-fatigue qualities
  • Higher health and safety costs
  • Sandwich mat foam layer compresses in high traffic areas

If used in a food processing plant and/or hospital:

  • RISKS of contamination
  • RISKS of tripping hazards

Additional issues include:

  • Jigsaw puzzle interlocking assembly
  • Overlapping/taped mats
  • Pieces that eventually don’t fit together and create tripping hazards (Usually after a few washes)

Use two different materials that will react in opposite ways to the weight being applied on the mat. This will cause the edges to curl up. The curled and chipped edges create dangerous tripping hazards.

Ergomat Advantages

  • Always in one piece, always with beveled edges – no tripping hazards, no taping for the edges necessary: all under Ergomat’s TRUE Warranty!
  • Various colors, closed cell (non-porous) mats for food processing plants
  • Available in ESD versions

Being market leaders for more than 20 years, Ergomat is excited to continue improving their line of anti-fatigue and ergonomic matting.
