Are you one of the 46% still working when you're ill?
On 30th Sep 2016
A survey of 2,000 working people found 46% still went to work when they were ill. Health concerns include: backache (84%), eye strain (42%), migraine (27%)
Speak to your HR/OH/Health & Saftey deprtment to understand what they and you can do to reduce the negative impact on your health and the companies bottom line. It could be subsidised weekly onsite massage/physio to resolve backache and improve mood, reassess your DSE audit for correct posture and workstation setup, or a first aid room where you can go for some quiet and darkness to assist in migraine relief.
