The Importance of Good OH&S

Are your managing a team of workers or running a business with many employees? If you have ever wondered what the positive impact of a healthier, happier workforce can do for your productivity and bottom line - then speak to SportsTec Clinic to discuss some potential strategies and outcomes for your people.

Here Are Some Scary (But True) Facts About OH&S

  1. Sedentary behaviour is one of the leading risk factors for death in the world, which equates to over 5 million people per year
  2. 2% disc compression occurs after sitting for just 4 hours. Postural changes every 15mins decreases this compression
  3. Sitting for an average of 6hrs a day at work caused 53% of people to get neck pain, 53.2% of people lower back pain and 51.6% of people to get shoulder pain
  4. Long sitting times causes 73.6% of people to feel exhausted at the end of a workday. Keep in mind ‘sitting hours’ over the day also include time spent sitting on your way to and from work, as well as the time you spend at home
  5. Studies have also shown that regular physical activity outside of work does not make up for the hours of prolonged static sitting done at work – meaning that the issue needs to be addressed in the workplace even if employees are active outside of work
  6. Average time lost for a serious workers claim has increased by 33% between 2001 and 2015
  7. People working in administration roles are most likely to be obese with 77% of people working in admin roles overweight or obese. (Stats from the UK)
