Health and Safety in the workplace – Bringing the nation to its knees

Thousands of people who spend any length of time kneeling are seriously underestimating the amount of long-term damage they could be doing to their knees, ultimately adversely affecting their mobility and even future finances through being unable to work.

Our knees are complex. Often thought of as a simple hinge in our legs, knees in fact support the majority of our body weight and allow us to stand, walk, run, climb stairs, kick, crouch, sit, and stand up again. For workers who spend a great deal of time on floor level surfaces, or crawling in confined areas, the phrase, “Our knees are our feet!” is appropriate. As a result, workplace injuries to knees are not uncommon.
