DON'T LET SIMPLE ISSUES LEAD TO
Workforce productivity is paramount to preventing delays and meeting deadlines. Removing distractions is essential to improving concentration and efficiency. In fact, an AOA survey found that 3 in 10 workers lose two or more hours a month on work-related tasks because of pain, which’s equivalent to three workdays a year.
DID YOU KNOW?
Over 50% of work related illness is due to musculoskeletal pain, at a cost of around €750million to the Irish Economy
The study found that musculoskeletal disorders have a significant negative impact on employee’s ability to work and ultimately affect the productivity and labour market participation of over half of Irish workers.
- Over half of Irish workers experience back pain each year;
- Over a quarter of non-fatal injuries in Irish workplaces are attributable to back pain;
- Just under 60% of Irish workers experience muscular pain;
- 714,000 people in Ireland have arthritis, with 25% of all visits to doctor’s surgeries each year being attributable to arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions.
Our feet are our foundation and without the proper support, they can contribute in a big way to this problem. Safety footwear can be a big part of this issue too. Designed for safety, this kind of footwear can often be uncomfortable and end up leading to painful conditions such as plantar fasciitis (severe heel pain), as well as Ankle, Knee, Hip, and Back Pain.
We have examined thousands of individual foot scans and studied the workings of the foot in depth. Our safety footwear optimised the contact between the floor and the foot. This is how we achieve the ‘perfect balance’ – the point at which movement requires minimum effort. The shoe sole gives comfort and support underfoot and returns energy where it is needed most
