Half of home-workers have sustained injuries from their environment

The most common issues are backache and neck pain

People who work from home are more likely to suffer from work-related injuries such as neck and back problems, according to recent research. The findings reveal that over half of home-workers (51%) have sustained injuries, aches and pains as a result of their working environment, which is 10% more likely than those working in a traditional workplace. The survey found one in four (25%) home-workers do not have a dedicated workspace at home and half (50%) of home-workers admitted to hunching over while working. A further 40% said they regularly work from their bed or sofa. The most common problems experienced are backache (24%) and neck-ache (20%).
