Right Mat, First Time

Choose the right ergonomic workplace mat and save even more in the long run!

There is a suitable tool for every task. If you don’t have the right tool, it can affect the quality of your work and incur additional costs for your business. Whether in retail, distribution or production, many people stand for a long time, which can have a negative impact on their well-being and overall health. Anti-fatigue mats are a great way to protect employees and increase productivity and reduce absenteeism. Absenteeism and other consequences of fatigue cost companies billions every year, so we need to change something.

The good news is that COBA offers hundreds of options for anti-fatigue mats, but there are also thousands of different workplaces, each with their own specific requirements.

Therefore, it is important to understand the requirements of a workplace and to ask the right questions. This is the only way to choose the right anti-fatigue mat and avoid a potentially wasted investment in a new workplace mat.

Protecting the health and well-being of employees

Business owners, health and safety officers and production managers are all responsible for the health and safety of employees in the workplace. However, without a solid understanding of the interactions between liquids, lubricants and chemicals used and different materials, the effects of employee movements on mat wear or other important conditions, choosing the most suitable workplace mat becomes a roulette game.

You leave the well-being of your employees and the associated investment of your company to chance.

COBA Africa helps you

‘Right mat, first time’ is our new campaign, which aims to support effective product selection in workplaces of all kinds. Choosing the most suitable anti-fatigue mat for your work environment means that your employees can better perceive the benefits of the product and the company can realise the return on investment.
