May is employee health & fitness month. Check out these health facts!
FACT #1: Over 80% of the U.S. industrial workforce experiences foot pain or lower leg problems as a result of the continuous pressure from standing on hard surfaces all day? Over time, this pressure can lead to painful conditions like plantar fasciitis, which is associated with heel pain and affects an estimated two million people each year!
FACT #2: Low back pain is the second leading reason employees are absent from work–second only to upper respiratory infection.
FACT #3: Clinical studies prove that arch supports reduce foot and back pain for people who stand for long periods of time, which can help your staff become more productive.
FACT #4: OSHA reports that PREVENTION is much less costly than treatment, and an effective safety and health program can save your company up to $6.00 for every $1.00 you invest!
