Back Pain is on the Increase for our Nation’s Children
Connect, Spring 2014: New tech, new threat
In our Spring 2014 issue, we hear from paediatric physiotherapist Lorna Taylor on the worrying increase in the levels of reported neck pain and back pain in children and young people. The latest report/figures shows that 72 per cent of primary aged children and 64 percent of secondary aged pupils have experienced back and/or neck pain in the past year, and what’s more, it’s likely to grow as our dependency on technology and devices also increases.
Plus, we delve into the psychology of the remote worker with Dr Christine Grant of Coventry University, we make the case for safety culture within organisations, Dr Stefan Ijmker of Efficiency Software tells you how to gain an hour a day and David Egan of Irwin Mitchell LLP lets you know how organisations can meet their responsibilities under health and safety legislation. Finally, Andrew Pinder shows us a case study from a major UK supermarket who wanted to increase productivity while minimizing manual handling risks.
