People who spend extended periods of time on their feet at work or in a repetitive environment are susceptible to foot and ankle injuries. Maintaining foot health is increasingly being viewed as an important strategy to improve productivity in the workplace.
According to WorkCover Queensland, foot and leg injuries account for 19% of workplace injuries, with an average of 10.8 weeks taken in ‘sick leave’.
