Back aches frequently cause days of work to be missed. Health issues of this kind typically persist over a long period of time and cause problems not only for the afflicted individuals themselves, but for everyone else around them. For large companies and family-owned enterprises alike, when an employee misses work it puts more pressure on other staff and greatly increases costs. So take a moment for your health and prevent problems by correctly adjusting your seat: it will take a load off you and your back. In the long term, it will pay off handsomely for everyone concerned. Adjust your seat to a comfortable, safe position for driving. If you are already suffering from back pain, make sure that you are using an ergonomic driver seat.
A good seat reduces the vibrations to which persons sitting in a vehicle are exposed. The seat and its suspension determine the physical stresses, and specifically the amplitude, frequency, and duration of vibrations, that a driver is subjected to in a given vehicle on a particular road surface. Body posture and support also influence the vibration load. Vibrations are especially dangerous when sitting greatly bent over or when the torso is rotated (e.g. when driving backward) or leaning to one side (e.g. when driving a tractor on a slope).
