The industrial athlete. Standing workers in industrial environments put high demands on their body and must overcome challenging conditions. We work alongside safety managers and facility owners to design products that solve specific workplace challenges. Our goal is to create a safer, more productive work environment for everyone that uses our products.
Independent studies at both the University of Michigan and Loughboro University in England prove the benefits of ergonomic mats vs. hard floor surfaces. Wearwell’s independent studies at Illinois State provide further scientific proof that mats reduce fatigue. Anti-Fatigue mats are proven to reduce the physical stress of standing by 50%, thus reducing the physical strain and long-term effects on the feet, legs and back.
Ergonomically correct mats have a positive impact on workers health, wellness and morale. Ergonomic mats are also proven to significantly reduce workplace accidents, downtime and absenteeism. A 1 or 2 % increase in productivity can add tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars to your bottom line.
We conducted our own independent study with a mid-size manufacturer in Tennessee that was having serious safety, health and absenteeism issues. After two years of Wearwell usage, study participants saw a 2.2% net increase in overall worker productivity, a 23% decrease in absenteeism and an estimated hard and soft cost savings of nearly half a million dollars.
