“Look after your staff, and they will look after your business”
Interestingly, whether you spend all day sat at a desk or all day lifting, carrying, crouching and generally performing all manner of physical tasks, the incidence of work related pain and injury are not dissimilar across all types of employment.

Work related injury, untreated, leads to 8 weeks absence: Conservatively costing the employer c.£4000
The same injury, recognised early, treated 6 times leading to 4 weeks absence: 6 treatments = £240, 4 weeks absence = c.£2000, total cost = £2240 – saving £1760
The end result: an episode cost saving of nearly 45%, and an employee that feels looked after and valued.
