For knowing your manufacturing business

Wellbeing in manufacturing: a proactive approach

If you run a manufacturing business, you may know how physically demanding working in the industry can be. It may come as no surprise that musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the single top cause of work-related ill health in the sector.1 However, did you know stress is another major issue, accounting for 28% of work-related ill health?1

Knowing the issues and what to do about them are two different things. The good news is the power to reduce the impact of these conditions is in your hands. Taking proactive measures to care for staff wellbeing, both physical and emotional, can help cut absences and build a happy, productive team.

Protecting your team

In a small- to medium-sized manufacturing business, looking after the wellbeing of every staff member helps promote a functional team and high productivity levels. Repeated or extended absences due to health issues may have a negative detriment not only to your business, but to the welfare and morale of your team. For the 2.7 million manufacturing sector employees who work in the UK, this indicates a total sick pay cost of £600 million for the sector.2
