This report describes the impact of musculoskeletal conditions on the UK workforce and gives the perspectives of people with musculoskeletal conditions about working life. It considers:

  • current health and work policy and programmes
  • the health and work research agenda
  • relevant employment legislation.

It also highlights some examples of good practice by employers, and sets out a series of recommendations to address the needs of people with musculoskeletal conditions who want to work. The authors also consider discrimination in the workplace, practical measures to support arthritis sufferers in employment, and the problems associated with different types of arthritis. They note that with a growing proportion of the workforce over 50, musculoskeletal conditions are likely to become more widespread, requiring urgent attention to these issues.
