WORK DAYS LOST

According to the Health and Safety Executive in 2007/8

* 34 million work days were lost overall
* 28 million due to work-related ill health and 6 million due to workplace injury

Here at Pivotal Health Solutions we are very aware of the growing cost to industry from lost work days as a result of both physical ill health and also stress. As budgets get smaller and demands for productivity increase, more responsibility falls on the shoulders of a smaller workforce.

Working on the basis that prevention is better than cure wherever possible, Pivotal have come up with a package of products to help businesses empower their workforce with the skills and knowledge to:

  • manage their stress and get the best work/ home balance
  • identify and understand the risks of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI’s) and how to prevent them
  • understand the causes and effects of bad posture and the impact to health

Pivotal Health Solutions also offer Return to Work Assessments particularly to assist staff members who are reaching the limits of their sickness absence.
