Back pain and these types of injuries can lead to workers’ compensation claims can be a significant cost for employers as well.

In terms of the cost of workers' compensation claims due to back injuries the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that the average cost of these claims can range between $40,000 to $80,0003. This figure includes the cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation post injury, and missed workdays because of the work-related injury.

Overall, the cost of workers' compensation claims due to back injuries from poor posture in sitting is likely to be significant for employers. Employers could combat these costs by providing an office chair that is backed by science to reduce disc pressure, reduce back pain, and promote good posture in the workplace.
