Today (3 November) is National Stress Awareness Day promoted by the International Stress Management Association UK www.isma.org.uk/national-stress-awareness-day/index.html an organisation that shares sound knowledge and best practice in the prevention and reduction of human stress.

Now in its 12th year, this established day of stress awareness organised by the charitable arm of the International Stress Management Association UK is this year entitled Start Living – Stop Stressing. 

There seems no better day to consider the workplace conditions and how they affect employees’ comfort, well-being and productivity.  Evaluating flooring is a good place to start.

This includes floor safety, which could be the condition and efficacy of entrance matting to prevent slips and trips, to industrial rubber flooring and matting, which can have positive advantages in comfort, safety and increased productivity. 

Noise levels can also be reduced through installation of industrial matting or rubber flooring, not to mention a warmer alternative for the cold months ahead.  Amazing how a simple mat can take the stress out of standing and improve the quality of life.
