Everyone at work will need to take sick leave at some time during his or her working lives and in most cases this lasts only a few days. Sometimes long term absence cannot be avoided causing devastating effects on business and personal finances. Healthplus Clinics Occupational Health specialise in managing and monitoring musculoskeletal causes of work based absence.
The most common causes of musculoskeletal disorders at work are manual handling, poor positioning in relation to the elements of the workstation and repetitive movements. These will also severely exacerbate a problem acquired elsewhere thus increasing the likelihood of sickness absence.
*In respect to back pain, the longer people are off work the less likely it is they will return. Research shows that after only four to twelve weeks sickness absence, a person’s ability to return to work falls away rapidly. After one to two years absence it is unlikely that an employee will return to any form of work in the foreseeable future, irrespective of further treatment.
Businesses cannot afford to lose staff due to illness or sick leave and employees don’t want to lose their livelihood or quality of life.
A wealth of experience in the occupational health has resulted in numerous companies currently benefiting from a cost-effective service. The process of implementation is easy and affordable for all sizes of companies and with our revolutionary proven process of management can bring immediate results.
