18 million working days are lost each year because working has made them ill.
Work related illness can take many forms and the symptoms may go unnoticed, slowly getting worse over time until the problem becomes permanent, disabling or even deadly.

There are a wide range of potential health risks in the workplace but they can be managed in ways which need not be costly or difficult. The BDA has produced an Occupational Health Surveillance Proforma to help members to start to monitor their employees work health, which will, if undertaken diligently and on a regular basis, bring long term rewards for both the business and its employees.
