Back aches frequently cause days of work to be missed. Health issues of this kind typically persist over a long period of time and cause problems not only for the afflicted individuals themselves, but for everyone else around them. For large companies and family-owned enterprises alike, when an employee misses work it puts more pressure on other staff and greatly increases costs. So take a moment for your health and prevent problems by correctly adjusting your seat: it will take a load off you and your back. In the long term, it will pay off handsomely for everyone concerned. Adjust your seat to a comfortable, safe position for driving. Also make a big effort to regularly vary your posture within the sensible adjustment range. If you are already suffering from back pain, make sure that you are using an ergonomic driver seat. Under certain circumstances, depending on your country, you may qualify for a subsidy from your medical insurer or retirement pension plan for purchasing a new seat.
