Back injuries can cause huge amounts of pain for the victim for a substantial period of time after the original accident. All employees who are asked to perform lifting duties in work should be trained on the correct lifting procedure to minimise the chance of an employee needlessly potentially permanently damaging their back or stomach muscles.
Sore backs and backache accounts for a very high proportion of the days off which employees take. These days off workincur a cost. This cost is borne by the employer and if the employer is responsible for causing the back injury which the client is suffering then the employer may also need to pay compensation to the employee. There may also be secondary costs such as needing to retrain another member of staff to perform the duties which were performed by that individual who has been injured. The employer may also have to pay for any legal fees which he may incur whilst fighting an employee’s claim for compensation. These are all financial costs; we have not taken into consideration here the emotional and physical costs of an accident which was easily preventable. Companies should also look at their employees and consider if morally they are treating their staff correctly.
