The year was 1903 and two bicycle repairman brothers from Ohio were about to make aviation history near the town of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
Though the Wright brothers weren’t the first to build aircraft, their test flight on December 17, 1903 landed them in aviation history because they were the first to invent “aircraft controls that made fixed wing flight possible.”
Over the last century, the aviation sector has grown to employ over 10 million people in the United States, and like all industries, it has seen its share of unique challenges both in the air and on the ground.
One such challenge that has grown within the aviation industry is keeping up with employee health and safety.
From the ticket counter to the baggage handlers, TSA and assembly line workers at industry giants like Boeing, many employees in the aviation industry spend a majority of the workday on their feet.
This prolonged standing not only causes physical pain and discomfort, it significantly reduces productivity for affected workers and impedes their ability to deliver outstanding service and value to themselves, their team members and potentially to customers.
Considering this, many leading airlines such as American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Alaska Airlines, US Airways Express, Southwest Airlines, and jetBlue trust SmartCells flooring and mats to reduce fatigue and keep their front line employees feeling good.
