Foot health week 2022

This week [25 April- 1 May] is Foot Health Week! This annual campaign is led by the Royal College of Podiatry and this year is focusing on you and your feet in the workplace. We use our feet each and every single day so with this in mind it’s just as vital that we take care of them much like we would our eyes!

According to the RCPod 79% of retail workers spend between four and ten hours on their feet during the working day and from these 30% felt that their mental wellbeing and quality of work were affected after just four hours. A further 35% didn’t seek a solution to their issues or know what available solutions were.
