Back injury study by the HSE
Back in 2006, the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) conducted a major study here in the UK to research into the incidence of back pain in the workplace. They discovered that people who are employed in the manual handling sector, were the most likely to sustain this sort of RSI injury. It turned out that one in five workers who experienced work related injuries, suffered from back pain – a statistic that is neither good for the individual, or the employer.
Back injury is a major cause of absence from work
This study carried out by the HSE discovered that there were an estimated 4.9 million working days lost per annum due to back injury. This equates to 1 in every 6 days being lost to a work related back injury. The total time a worker was forced be absent from the workplace per back related RSI injury incident. was an average 19 days. It was also estimated that the overall cost to the NHS ran out at approximately £5 billion per year.
