Home remedies for back and joint complaints

Musculoskeletal disorders are among the most frequent illnesses experienced by employees in Switzerland. Ergonomics at the workplace and training in work techniques that are kinder to health: these are effective steps to maintain your employees’ health. Any employer who takes this approach will boost motivation

Why is ergonomics so important?

Some of the most important steps that enhance physical health at the workplace are very small. One example: an office chair with a correct ergonomic setting can improve employees’ wellbeing at their computer workstations for many years to come. Ergonomics creates optimum working conditions and increases potential for performance.

Start with the most obvious health risks

If ergonomic criteria are neglected, chronic strain can occur. Identical or similar sequences of movements often have to be repeated in everyday working life, so the strains keep on adding up and eventually lead to complaints and disorders.

By providing ergonomic equipment, instruments or tools and ensuring they are correctly adjusted, you can make a major contribution to health in your company.

Exercise will make your company fit!

A little exercise works wonders, and it also fosters team spirit. We will help you keep your entire workforce happily ‘on their toes’ during breaks and after work.

Here are just a couple of reasons why:

  • Every intervertebral disk needs movement to stay healthy
  • Well-balanced muscles are an advantage (for example, excess back strain during lifting activities is often caused by weak leg muscles)
  • Injuries are reduced by training in techniques to protect the body during work
  • Fitness strengthens body and mind
