Skipton Swimarathon

8th November 2021

As many of you know Nick is the chairman of the Skipton Swimarathon. We are really pleased to share that Citizens Advice Guernsey and the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation are the main beneficiaries of this year’s record-breaking Skipton Swimarathon. The event saw 2,500 swimmers raise more than £80,000 for local good causes. Organisers handed out platinum, gold, silver and bronze awards to corporate groups and clubs that supported the event, which is in its 45th year. The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation will use the donation from the Swimarathon to fund a year’s upkeep of one of its flats next to Southampton Hospital, which is available to families from the Bailiwick with children receiving treatment at the hospital.

There have been numerous reports of employees suffering with back and neck problems mainly caused by poor ergonomics  and workstations set up incorrectly, especially if laptops are being used whilst seated on a lounge sofa or at a kitchen table on a stool. Does this sound familiar? Employers do have a responsibility of care to ensure that their staff are reasonably safe in their workplace whether in their normal office environment or working from home on company business. Some offices have allowed their employees to take their office chairs and screens home for use whilst the lockdown has been in place but has anyone actually checked that these have been installed to match the postural requirements of the individuals concerned. Prime Practice has been providing ergonomic workstation assessments for over 20 years and this has included advising clients with setting up home offices. This has mainly applied to self-employed businesses but we are now receiving enquiries from employers to extend this...
