The rise of workstation health assessments

We know that musculoskeletal injury, especially back problems, is the UK’s number one reason for sick leave, costing companies over £10.7 billion every year.

But during COVID-19, employees reported an incredible 66% increase in musculoskeletal problems.

This has been attributed to the nation’s rapid transition into a work from home environment, with makeshift desks and limited posture provisions in place.

With the looming threat of legal concerns, many employers are looking for occupational health partners who can prevent, assess, and treat their workforce as they either remain at home or return to the office.

In response, GPDQ, a trusted NHS partner, are providing companies with proactive Workstation Health Assessments to look after employee health and mitigate legal concerns for employers.
