Employers and managers are often concerned about chronic musculoskeletal disorders due to the impact on employees’ ability to work. For example, 7.8 million days (19,7%) were lost in 2019 due to musculoskeletal conditions (The Office of National Statistics, 2019).

Employers have a legal duty to provide safe workplaces that do not harm employees' health. Due to demographic changes, the move towards sustained employability over the longer-term poses many challenges for older employees.

This booklet will provide you with advice, examples and tips for supporting the musculoskeletal health of older employees and reducing workplace absence. If you are wondering how you can support your employees then this booklet is for you.
