Back pain and associated disorders cost the economy an estimated £7.4 billion a year in days taken off sick from work, according to a recent report by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP).
But, the report shows, taking steps to treat these problems early – or prevent them in the first place – has been proven to have real business benefits.
Get Back Supplies has welcomed the report by the CSP as a clear call to employers to invest in health. As Paul Jaggard, owner of Get Back Supplies, says: “The report demonstrates what we have long seen, that companies who take care of their staff seen an excellent return on their investment.
The report highlights the case of one employer who saw a massive return of £34 for every £1 they invested.
More companies need to wake up to the reality that there is increasing pressure on staff due to a squeezed job market. If they want to get the most from each and every employee, they need to invest in the health of their staff.”
Get Back Supplies can help companies to manage back problems in staff. Their assessment services highlight if there is a need for ergonomic products, such as chairs for bad backs, to help an employee to manage their back pain.
They have a full range of ergonomic office furniture by the leading brands, offering a variety of seating options to suit any back complaint. They also offer training courses to help employers understand and act upon causes of work-related ill health.
