Although there has been a wave of the Baby Boomer generation retiring in recent years, a significant number of employees between the ages of 55 to 65 still remain in the workforce. This increase in older employees presents a new set of challenges when it comes to workplace safety and comfort.
In fact, according to the 2017 statistics gathered by the BLS, workers over the age of 55 accounted for nearly 52% of fatal injuries due to falls.
Beyond accidental deaths in the workplace, BLS reports state that even though older employees are not injured at a higher incidence, “the injury suffered is often more severe than that of younger employees”, which leads to longer recovery times and an increase in lost productivity.
Facing these challenges, forward thinking organizations realize the key to success with an aging workforce is a focus on workplace safety and ergonomics.
This is where SmartCells products can provide a solution.
SmartCells anti-fatigue products are engineered to provide optimal levels of comfort and safety for standing workers. For older workers with higher risk of falling, the SmartCells structure provides a stable, balance-enabling surface that aids in the prevention of serious fall-related injuries.
The unique SmartCells technology provides a stable, supportive surface that cushions as weight is applied, then rebounds, like a spring, when the weight shifts, which returns energy and reduces fatigue.
SmartCells Anti-fatigue technology is available in pre-sized mats for single workstations or as a custom flooring solution designed to meet the needs of your specific environment.
