There are certain environments where you want to have safety flooring. If you work in a restaurant, then you need something under your feet while you’re washing dishes so that you don’t slip on any water that gets on the floor. There could also be grease on the floor while cooking. Another job where you would need a mat on the floor is working with mechanics. There could be liquids, such as oil, that get on the floor.
Anytime you are standing on a concrete floor for an extended period of time you need to have soem kind of mat. It will give you the support you need for your feet so that you don’t have the full pressure from the hard floor on your body. Some of these mats are seen at grocery stores so that cashiers and other employees can stand on them for longer periods of time. You might also see them in salons as hair stylists are on their feet for long hours. These mats have a grip on the bottom that prevents sliding and falls. Some of the mats can also prevent the spread of spills depending on the kind of material that is on top of the mat.
