Physiotherapy for Businesses
It is a legal requirement for employers to carry out workstation assessments (Health and Safety Display Screen Equipment Regulations 1992) and good ergonomic practices should encourage greater efficiency and performance from staff with a reduction in absence and higher morale.

There are also legal duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) and Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992 - amended) in which employers are obliged to provide training, assessment, and safe systems of work to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of employees as far as reasonably practicable where manual handling activities are carried out.

There are high costs associated with staff absence. The financial costs to employers can include sick pay, costs of temporary staff cover, potential new recruitment costs, low staff morale, possible legal and compensation cases, reduction in productivity, increased risk of errors and injuries with potential impact on insurance premiums.

The costs to injured staff through poor work practice or posture disorders are also high and can pose a high financial cost, lower morale, threaten future work opportunities and prospects and can have a major impact on home and family life.
