BackCare Awareness Week 2012
8th October 2012
Back pain doesn’t kill, it tortures and destroys lives and livelihoods. It accounts for half of all chronic pain and is the leading cause of sickness absence from work.
The financial burden of back pain is enormous:-
o EVERY DAY it costs the NHS £1.3 million
o EVERY DAY it costs £13 million in Disability Benefits
o EVERY DAY it costs the UK Economy £37 million
That’s a staggering £19 BILLION every year!
This year a new campaign is being launched during BackCare Awareness Week, focussed on the construction industry, which generates 30,000 new back injuries every year.
The campaign pack is now available to order so you can join the campaign and help to make a difference!
Each pack contains:
o The Official A5 Campaign Booklet, outlining the core issues and how you can participate
o A3 Wall Poster for your worksite, office or classroom
o High-Visibility Awareness Stickers, for your work zones or machines
