As part of Functional Wellness, Workplace Health or Office Ergonomics is a crucial step towards preventing musculoskeletal problems.
Workplace Safety & Health
The World Heath Organisation has advised that the workplace, along with the school, hospital and marketplace, has been established as one of the priority settings for health promotion into the 21st century. The idea of the health promoting workforce is becoming increasingly relevant as more organisations recognise that success in the marketplace can only be achieved with a healthy, qualified and motivated workforce.
Back Pain Epidemic
In the 2012 Global Medical Trends study by Tower Watson, Musculoskeletal/Back Condition is No 5. in the Global Top Conditions that cause the highest prevalence of medical claims. It is often caused by ordinary work activities such as sitting in an office chair or heavy lifting.
Applying ergonomic principles – the study of the workplace as it relates to the worker – can help prevent work-related back pain and back injury and help maintain a healthy back.
The aim of an ergonomics program is to adapt the workplace to a specific worker, dependent on the job description, required tasks, and physical make up of the employee performing those tasks.
