During the busy holiday season, retail workers will find their shifts extended to nearly a full day, and in some cases working well into the night depending on if shops decide to stay open. However, these longer hours can take a toll on the body, particularly the joints if you’re constantly standing in one spot, like behind a register.
Consider adding anti-fatigue mats to behind the cash wrap, where employees can stand on them and get joint relief due to the rubber. Additionally, the anti-fatigue mats are a great addition for reducing the dirt and grime that’s typically tracked in with shoes. This will prevent your nice store floors from getting ruined by all the foot traffic. Because of the rubber material, they’re easy to clean, only needing a simple wipe down with a damp cloth.
The holiday season is a busy time for the retail sector, so if there is a spill or a lot of wrapping on the floor, employees will not have to worry about slipping and falling while trying to move between each other and attend to all customers. From both a comfort and safety perspective, anti-fatigue mats are a great addition to the cash wrap station.
