Every year, 2 million sick days are lost due to lower limb disorders, and many of these sick days could be prevented by simply: • wearing the right footwear for the job; • following an appropriate daily foot care programme.

 

Work related foot problems

We all know that regular maintenance and a yearly MOT is vital to keep a car running smoothly, yet most of us overlook how important it is to care for our feet. Hidden away in shoes, we don’t give them much thought. Standing for long periods may cause pain or discomfort to the feet, ankles, knees and hips, as well as to the back and neck. Also, standing for long periods in unsuitable footwear may exacerbate any underlying problem you may have with your joints, increasing the rate at which arthritic changes take place. 

 

Accidents at work In an at-risk environment, unprotected feet are at risk from accident and injury such as puncture wounds, crushing and laceration, sprained ankles, chemical burns, fractures
