Employers failing to protect computer users

Posted in: Employer Negligence 

Recent research has found that employee health could be at risk because employers are not doing enough to protect them from the effects of poor computer use.

According to the study by energiseYou, the large majority of employees score just 55% on the key drivers of smart computer use, which can have implications for their health.

The research of over 2,000 employees also found that:

  • Just 30% say that their working environment is suitable, e.g. comfortable lighting levels.
  • Less than half say they stretch their neck, back and shoulders at least once during the working day.
  • 37% suffer from tension headaches or migraines.
  • 66% have tension or feel pain in their neck, back and shoulders.
  • Only 50% of them take regular breaks from their computer.
  • Only 30% eat lunch away from their computer/desk.
  • Over 50% have a TV or computer/laptop in their bedroom.

Oliver Gray, Managing Director of energiseYou, said: “Most people’s habits mean they are using technology non-stop from the minute they open their eyes to the minute they close them at night. This over stimulation of mind and body can drain energy and cause poor health, such as sleep problems and mental health fatigue.
