Musculoskeletal and eye-related complaints appear to be a common occurrence in every day office life. And a survey we conducted at the Post Office Shop has found that back pain is the most prevalent complaint leaving four in ten desk bound employees in regular discomfort.
According to the Work Foundation, back pain alone costs the UK economy £7bn a year in work-related absences.
But it’s not just back pain that employers should be concerned about. Our poll compiled from over 1,100 responses found that there are a variety of musculoskeletal and eye disorders which are prevalent at work.
