Office ergonomics and injury prevention
Over the last ten years, there has been an increase in days off work for low back and neck pains along with repetitive stress injuries. As everyone knows, prevention is better and cheaper than cure!
Why the increase?
As a result of the advancement of IT, people are spending longer sitting at their desks without taking natural breaks.
Added to this is an increase in stress, which has become a more widespread problem as a result of job uncertainties.
Recent statistics reveal a lack of regular exercise, and an increase in obesity.
These three factors alone increase the likelihood of workplace problems.
