Can Work Damage Your Health
ErgoCube are working with a team of contributors on an ergonomic campaign which is soon to be launched…. By conducting a survey and reviewing research, ErgoCube have found a high incidence of work related aches, pains and injuries.
The ergonomic campaign aims to bring together a wealth of knowledge and experience to help reduce the incidence of work related pains by providing a knowledge base. Contributors to the campaign include Pain Concern and an Occupational Physiotherapist. The knowledge base includes first person expert comments on “Can Work Damage Your Health”, interviews with experts in their related fields and articles covering a wealth of subjects including repetitive strain injury and McTimoney Chiropractic treatment. There are also some ‘how to’ video demonstrations providing tips to achieve an ergonomic office workspace.
In addition to the informative ‘learn’ section, there will also be a ‘save’ section offering discounts and a ‘win’ section. A bumper prize is on offer which includes an office chair, ergonomic accessories, a magazine subscription and pain relieving products.
One of the contributors to the campaign, Sarah Chatwin PhD MSTAT, Alexander Technique Writer, Teacher and Mentor comments:
Too many hours sitting at a desk, too much stress – work can take a great physical and emotional toll. So what are your options? First, commit to doing what you have to at work in as healthy a way as possible. Second, be mindful of how you spend your non-work time. Keep yourself in good shape.
The ergonomic campaign will run for the months of June and July. Look out for the launch via the ErgoCube website and on social media sources including the Saxen Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages and the ErgoCube LinkedIn page. Other campaign contributors will be promoting through their own websites and/or social media sources.
