Rehabilitation and managing sickness absence conference provides key to huge rewards in manufacturing

HSE InfoLine : 16 January, 2006  (Company News)
The Health and Safety Executive's manufacturing sector has announced a 'best practice' conference on rehabilitation and managing sickness absence among employees in manufacturing industries.
The Health and Safety Executive's manufacturing sector has announced a 'best practice' conference on rehabilitation and managing sickness absence among employees in manufacturing industries.

The conference takes place on 9 March 2006 in Stoke-On-Trent and is aimed at key intermediaries involved in manufacturing industries, such as trade associations, employer associations, trade unions and training organisations.

It brings together a series of speakers who will share their success stories on how they implemented effective programmes to manage sickness absence and rehabilitation, together with the business and human benefits that flow from them. Delegates will be able to take away examples to adapt and apply to help their own stakeholders realise similar successful strategies.

Announcing the conference, Terry Aston from HSE's manufacturing sector said:

'Long-term sickness absence costs UK businesses over 3.8 billion each year. Organisations that have implemented effective management programmes have reaped huge rewards in terms of having a healthy workforce, reducing costs, improving competitiveness, improving workplace relationships and holding on to valued staff.

'One of our speakers will, for example, show how his company reduced musculoskeletal disorders by 90% and through that, saved not only considerable human suffering, but also 0.5 million in the first year of their programme alone. Other businesses can learn from this experience.'
