Occupational Health and Rock & Roll
It may seem like pure music and lights and screaming fans, but underneath it all, most classic rock is about the poetry in the lyrics. In fact, some of the themes are so good, they can be applied to any field of study – even occupational health!
Here, we’ve curated a list of our top three tips for good occupational health – with some goodies thrown in for you rock fans!
- If you have a sedentary job, get up every hour! Stretch, jog, walk in formation across a certain intersection in London… whatever you do, move!
- Don’t do it alone. By “it,” we mean anything risky or that may cause harm to you or others. Not only does working alone increase your chances of injury, it also just makes you feel, in the words of Led Zeppelin, “lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely!”
- And while you’re with your team… communicate! Don’t be afraid to talk to an HR representative about any concerns or misgivings you have about your job. As long as you are honest, this can only help you. And always remember, if you are ever in a tough situation, that it is okay to ask for help. A simple “gimme shelter” would suffice! (Though you may want to throw in a ‘please’ somewhere!)
