Since the time the first factory was set up in Europe during the time of the industrial revolution, it has been a blessing for mankind since they helped in producing essential goods and services at a hitherto unprecedented scale. It allowed production at such a scale that almost an entire town could be supplied with the materials produced by one factory and could still have some of the produce leftover, which could never be produced in the earlier production techniques. In addition to that, prices of goods dropped considerably due to the higher level of production and factories gradually were set up all across the world.
However, in order to run a massive operation like a factory there is a need for personnel who are supposed to operate the machines. The machines are the primary reason for the high levels of production at the factories, however the personnel who operate are in constant danger of being on the wrong end of malfunctioning machines. One of the most unfortunate occupational hazards personnel at most factories have to go through from time to time is of suffering electric shocks from overheated or overworked machines. It is the factory owners responsibility then to provide his workers with the safest possible environment in which they should carry out their duties.
Factory owners have tried their utmost to provide their workers with the most effective electric shock protection equipments, so that there are not fatalities at factories. Now, the problem for a long time has been the fact that there has not been enough effective materials or equipments which provide complete protection from the electric shocks. For many years rubber mats were used for electric shock protection since rubber is a poor conductor of heat, but although these mats were not as effective when it came to protection. They were not entirely protective from shocks and on top of that were susceptible to fires. However, there is no more need to worry after the production of rubber mats which are capable of withstanding extreme electrical shocks and also do not catch fire. Currently these mats are the industry standard for electric shock protection.
One of the leading manufacturers of high voltage rubber mats is the company Electromat. They use cutting edge technology to manufacture perhaps some of the most effective and popular rubber mats, which provide exemplary shock protection to workers in factories ion a variety of industries.
