The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) has recently released their ‘Fit for Active Work’ leaflet as part of their ‘Move for Health’ campaign.
This leaflet has been compiled with the help of chartered physiotherapists specialising in occupational health and ergonomics. The illustrations feature fictional characters but the demands their active jobs place on their bodies are very real! Millions of people across the UK have physically demanding or repetitive jobs. If you’re one of them, this leaflet explains how to improve your health while doing your active or manual work and reduce your risk of injury.
As the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” There’s certainly no sense in injuring oneself at work, and go through all the motions with a Texas Maritime lawyer or such, when you can be fit and healthy.
