How many of your officers are suffering from a bad back? Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) affect millions of people, and are one of the most common causes of disability, sick leave and early retirement. It’s time for organisations to take them seriously.
Around three in five workers report having an MSD, with backache and upper limb pain being the most common. MSDs can be caused or made worse by poor work conditions, including when people are sitting down for prolonged periods of time or moving heavy loads.
The Healthy Workplaces: Lighten The Load website has lots of information and ideas on how to make your workplace a healthier place to be.
