Work-related back pain is reaching endemic levels in the UK.
Approximately 1.1 million people are currently suffering from a back complaint caused by work and a staggering 48% of new work-related ill health cases reported to GPs are musculoskeletal disorders. This all adds up to make back pain the single most common health problem experienced by British workers.
This isn’t just painful for them, it hits businesses too. It’s estimated that 12.3 million days are lost each year because of back-related injuries, which seriously impacts productivity levels.
Much of the problem stems from the prolonged use of equipment that isn’t ergonomically suited to the employee. Staff find themselves stuck at a ‘one-size-fits-all’ desk all day, rarely moving or adjusting their working position. The results of all this are – quite literally – an almighty pain in the neck.
Neopost’s latest electronic height adjustable tables take away this pain. At the touch of a button, they can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of each employee, eradicating the need to stretch or stoop. Specifically designed to support the stable and comfortable operation of franking machines, address printers and folder inserters, they also allow staff to switch between a sitting and standing position. As you’d expect from Neopost, they’re also fully compliant with all relevant EU Directives.
