Workers who stand for more than four hours per day with minimal movement can become fatigued. A worker who is not comfortable is not as productive as someone who is feeling healthy. Studies reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) support this assertion. These studies indicate that lost worker productivity as a result of the “common aches and pains” often associated with standing for long periods of time costs American employers more than $60 billion annually. This worker productivity is not necessarily lost due to absenteeism. In most cases, workers do not believe they are in enough pain to justify taking time off of work. Instead, these costs are the result of reduced worker performance. The JAMA study estimates that about 4 hours per week are lost due to reduced worker performance, or about 25 days of productivity per year are lost due to pain that could be eliminated with proper anti-fatigue matting.
