Slip and fall accidents cause more than 1 million hospital visits a year. They are also one of the leading causes of compensation claims.

So, you probably already know that your smartphone has more germs than your toilet seat, but that doesn’t mean toilets aren’t some of the germiest surfaces in a restroom.

Imagine that your job requires you to stand on your feet for hours on end every single day, five days a week.
This kind of working condition is tough, not just on the legs but also on the motivation of employees. Unfortunately, this is everyday reality for many workers – especially for those working in the hospitality, food service, healthcare, and manufacturing industries.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. There’s one simple way to combat fatigue at your business and improve the conditions of the workplace: anti-fatigue mats.

Your 10,000 daily steps aren’t all that clean and healthy, are they?
