    Lower Limb Disorders (LLDs)

    Musculoskeletal injuries, and in particular LLDs (Lower Limb Disorders) are prevalent where workers spend the majority of their time at work, on their feet. 80% of all of the LLDs reported in the workplace come about through overuse of limbs and muscles. They affect:

    • The hips
    • The legs (including me injury)
    • The ankles
    • The feet
    • The toes

    Lower limb disorders include things like:

    • Osteoarthritis of the hips and knees
    • Knee bursitis
    • Ligament injuries
    • Stress fractures
    • Varicose veins

    The symptoms of LLDs include:

    • Difficulty in bending and straightening
    • Difficulty with joint manoeuvrability
    • Aches, pains and tenderness
    • Tingling sensations
    • Feelings of numbness
    • Muscle cramps and swelling

    If you experience any of these symptoms, then you should go and see your GP for a diagnosis, and if it appears to be work-related, you must inform your employer.

    Mitigating LLD risk in the workplace

    As already stated, the majority of LLDs come about through overuse of the lower limbs, joints and muscles. Therefore risk is reduced by re-evaluating tasks via risk assessment procedures, and mitigating any risk hazards by:

    • Providing mechanical aids
    • Staff rotation to share tasks and minimise risks
    • Where possible, providing seating
    • Issuing appropriate PPE (e.g. knee pads, anti fatigue matting, special work shoes, or shock absorbing insoles.

    The employer’s responsibility

    All employees have a responsibility to ensure their employees are able to work in risk free environments, or where a risk hazard exists, to mitigate that risk. These duties are specified in:

    • The Health and Safety at Work Etc Act 1974
    • The Management of Health and Safety of Work Regulations 1999
