Back in work back pack

Back pain

07 / 10 / 2015

The Back in work back pack was produced by the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group (HSWPG). The resource is divided into six parts and outlines the measures employers and employees need to take in order to reduce the incidence of work-related back and musculoskeletal disorders. 

The back pack is split into six sections: 

• Part 1 of 6: Introduction and key messages 
• Part 2 of 6: The staff guide 
• Part 3 of 6: The line managers guide 
• Part 4 of 6: The safety representatives guide 
• Part 5 of 6: Workplace and individual assessment tool 
• Part 6 of 6: Further information and quick links 

Within the back pack you can find information on reducing the incidence of sickness absence related to back and musculoskeletal conditions, and protect staff from painful and often long-term health problems. 

In addition, our sickness absence tool gives you more information on how back problems can affect your organisation.
