What Back Ailments Cost Companies

Surveyed workers in Europe most frequently cite back and muscle pain when asked about work-related problems (KKH 2008). Back pain is also the most frequent cause of inability to work. For any company, this incurs enormous costs as a result of production downtimes. And if employees work despite their complaints, they can be expected to be 18-26 percent less productive (Badura et al. 2006). So take preventive action by protecting your employees’ health!
