"Three in four office workers blame desks for sickness: Badly set up desks and chairs cost companies £7bn each year." So says the Daily Mail reports on a study by ergonomics specialist Fellowes.
GP Dr Sarah Jarvis says "‘On a daily basis I see many patients suffering particularly from back pain, and I ask routinely about workplace set-up because I know the consequences of poor posture and spending long periods sitting in the wrong position."
The study says that "Half of the office workers said they had not had a workstation risk assessment in the last 12 months despite it being a legal requirement."
