The fifth annual W@WD, held in partnership with Aviva, will take place on Friday 12 June. Registration is now open.

A successful 2014 event saw almost 300 members take the opportunity to spread the ‘fit for work’ message.

They held 230 events across the UK to get employees moving during the working day. The CSP hopes a record number of members will join this year’s campaign.

Mark Armour, chair of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics (ACPOHE), urged members to join the campaign.

‘We want phyios to showcase the impact we can have on the wellbeing of employees,’ Mr Armour said.

This year the CSP press office is looking for showcase events to pitch to local media and help spread the W@WD message further.

Canterbury Physiotherapy and sports injury clinic director Mary Somers gained media coverage for her chair exercise class with local businesses last year.

‘Promoting physiotherapy in the form of exercise gives a bit more of an insight into what our profession can offer,’ Ms Somers said.

‘The feedback I received was very positive. Everyone really enjoyed it and a lot of people said they were interested because they went away with simple exercises they could do themselves.’

See the Workout at Work Day webpage to register your event and download the W@WD member guide.
