Sickness absence

In general it is accepted that work is essential to health, well-being and self-esteem. Common mental health problems and musculoskeletal disorders are amongst the important causes of sickness absence. The CBI calculates that 175 million working days are lost each year due to sickness absence. Absences of 4 weeks make up an estimated 6% of the number of absences and represent 43% of days lost.
