The Concept of a healthy workplace
When we think about health, we now know that it means more than just the absence of disease and injury. The situation is much more complex and there are subtleties that ensure a persons wellbeing and optimising their performance.
The modern Western world is facing a rapidly ageing population and increasing numbers of the working population are coping with the double burden of caring for, and financing both children and elderly relatives. It is vital that successful businesses understand that the health and wellbeing of their workforce has to be nurtured in order to continue to be able to attract and retain quality staff as well as to ensure that their staff remain focused, engaged and productive.
20% off all workers in the UK are over 50 and this figure is predicted to rise over the next coming years to 33%. This is a monumental change in the UK work force. Public health campaigns have created awareness of some of the fundamental health issues surrounding diet, obesity, smoking and exercise. However, to drive people to change, the culture and social norms around people is important to support the changes that are necessary.
When it comes to absenteeism and the related cost to the employers, Musculoskeletal injuries are by far the biggest cause. According to the Health and Safety executive, approximately 40% of all absenteeism is due to work related musculoskeletal complaints, and out of this 60% are due to neck and back. Back pain alone has been reported to account for 119 million lost days at work annually.
A recent report from The Work Foundation has found that musculoskeletal disorders, a group of over 200 conditions including arthritis, back pain and damage to joints, muscles and tendons are by far the most prevalent cause of work-related illness in the UK affecting twice as many people as stress. MSDs account for up to one third of all GP consultations, result in 9.5 million lost working days, and currently cost society approximately £7.4billion a year. They suggest that the onset of an MSD may reduce work performance in a variety of ways, affecting stamina, concentration and mood as well as mobility and agility. GPs and employers should look beyond obvious physical symptoms in their management of these conditions. The ‘biopsychosocial’ model of health emphasising the interrelationship between biological, psychological and social factors offers a useful approach to assessment, treatment and rehabilitation
The impact that early access to Physiotherapy, as the Musculoskeletal experts, could help to reduce the cost to industry and reduce the time off work
