Continuous stress placed on the lower limbs and corresponding muscles can be alleviated through appropriate surface solutions that offer ample support and underfoot comfort. Altro provides a variety of flooring solutions designed to offer ample comfort underfoot as well as integrated sound reduction that can create quiet, comfortable interiors for busy spaces. This makes them ideal for enhancing safety in facilities where employees are constantly on their feet and mobile during their shift.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) as injuries or disorders of the muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage or spinal discs that result from overexertion or repetitive motion. Work conditions that can produce MSDs in employees include routine lifting of heavy objects, performing repetitive forceful tasks and excessive pressure on joints and muscles from standing for extended periods on hard, unforgiving surfaces.

As fatigue sets in while employees are standing on hard surfaces, the risk of developing MSDs with lasting pain and discomfort rises. While repetitive tasks and spending hours upright during shifts are unavoidable in retail, healthcare, education and manufacturing fields, it is possible to take preventative measures to ensure that these environments promote the wellbeing of their respective employees.
