How SmartCells Can Help Reduce the Risk of a Food Borne Illness Outbreak

Employee fatigue doesn’t just affect the individual. It affects the whole organization.

It might start with little mistakes on occasion, but without proper mitigation, those fatigue-related mistakes could lead to an on-the-job injury or even worse, a customer getting harmed.

Take for example the food service industry. An industry defined by professionals standing and remaining mobile for the majority of their shift.

These extended periods of standing and activity significantly increase the risk of employee fatigue and related mistakes.

In fact, a recent article published on the Food Safety Magazine website, draws correlations between fatigue-related human errors and public health risk of a food borne illness outbreak.

Considering the potential damage a fatigue-related mistake could inflict on a food service business and its customers, it is easy to see the value in addressing the issue of  fatigue.

That’s where SmartCells can help.

Designed with the belief that Life Shouldn’t Hurt™, our suite of Anti-Fatigue solutions all utilize our unique SmartCells Cushioning Technology.

The optimized design of SmartCells offer a stable surface over cylindrical cells which soften under impact and resist bottoming out. This creates the perfect balance of support and cushion, for maximum fatigue relief; allowing users to stay safe and comfortable. 

In addition to our unique cushioning technology, thanks to their rubber-based formulation, SmartCells mats will not absorb liquid and are easy to clean which allows for better infection control processes.

SmartCells Cushioning is available in a variety of Anti-fatigue Solutions ranging in size from individual employee mats to extended workstation runners, and custom flooring applications. We even offer different colors, rubber formulations, and surface options to best meet your organization’s unique needs. All we need are your dimensions and we can build it for you.

For wait staff members where a SmartCells mat or floor isn’t a good option, we’re proud to offer our SmartCells Anti-fatigue Industrial Insole.

This insole is the perfect solution for on-the-go fatigue relief. Featuring SmartCells® Cushioning in the heel and forefoot, these insoles significantly reduce impact forces and also return the energy back to your body. The additional layers provide a cushioned arch support and add a soft yet sturdy top cover to keep every employee comfortable throughout the day.
