June is National Safety Month. This annual month-long safety awareness campaign is held every June with the goal of reducing injuries at “work, on the road and in our homes and communities”.
A 2016 BLS study found that there were 2.9 million non-fatal workplace injuries (including 317,530 cases of sprains and strains, 154,180 back injuries, and 229,240 injuries from falls) “reported by private industry employers”. Further, nearly 1/3 of the injuries reported resulted in a median time away from work of 8 days. Not to mention, these were only the “reported” injuries. We can imagine there were several more that weren’t reported.
An injury doesn’t just hurt your employee, it can harm their productivity. So, how can you protect both your workforce and your bottom-line?
You can follow in the footsteps of many leading companies such as Amazon, Disney, Boeing, and Costco who proactively invest in their employees’ health and safety by utilizing SmartCells Cushioning Technology.
Ergonomically engineered to resist bottoming out without being too soft, the unique SmartCells anti-fatigue mats, runners, and flooring provide a safe, stable and comfortable surface to work on.
Can ergonomically designed rubber mats really help my workforce and my bottom-line?
They sure can.
In fact, according to a study on lost productivity conducted by The Journal of the American Medical Association, 12.6% of workers experience a loss of productivity due to the following pain conditions: headaches(5.4%), back pain (3.2%), musculoskeletal pain (2.0%) and arthritis pain (2.0%).
Based on the results of this study, SmartCells cushioning technology can effectively reduce nearly 41% of the pain associated with lost productivity due to painful conditions (back and musculoskeletal pain). Over time that adds up to a lot of saved productivity and reduced costs.
