During the year 2009/10, an estimated 1.3 million people in the UK were recorded as suffering from an illness which was thought to be work-related.
Musculoskeletal disorders, mainly affecting the back, upper and lower limbs as well as the neck, accounted for almost 50% of those recorded cases.*
Common occupational injuries:
- Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI)
- Headache/migraine which can be caused through neck and shoulder muscles being overused whilst sitting for long periods at a computer or performing manual labour.
- Lower back pain from poor sitting postures.
