One of the most common causes of long term sickness absence in UK is musculoskeletal complaints and according to the Office for National Statistics accounts for just over a quarter of all days lost (34.4 million days). Ergonomic challenges in the workplace can cause such conditions and with quality functional assessments of the worker workplace fit, such complaints and related sickness absence can be reduced.
Insync occupational health professionals can deliver functional assessments either based in a clinical environment or in the workplace, depending on the concern. After the assessment, they will provide an objective, evidence-based report detailing any recommended adjustments that might assist with workers with musculoskeletal problems caused or exacerbated by their working environment.
The company can also provide training for in-house workstation assessors, as a cost-effective solution to meet the current Display Screen Equipment Regulations amended in 2002.
