    I have to organise many events held at various locations including trade halls and conference centres and this is one complaint I hear from my staff all the time. I will definitely be looking into the option of ergonomic mats if it will keep the complaints to a minimum.

    Conventional wisdom has always been that too much padding (double-padding) promotes fatigue. It certainly seems that way to me.

    Hey Dale I’d love a photo of the sort of floor pad that you are describing in this article. There are several styles and designs to choose from, but I’m not sure what exactly you are describing. When reading this article, I’m picturing those firm rubber floor mats with a grid on them…the sort I see in the restrooms at gyms and such. Is this what you are talking about? They can definitely pose a tripping hazard, and I’m pretty sure they won’t look that attractive. I’d recommend interlocking foam tiles with a foam or carpet top for these purposes. Just enough cushion without triggering the stabilizers in your legs that create premature muscle fatigue.
