How do RSI's occur?
A common misconception about repetitive strain injuries is that they only occur in environments where there is a lot of heavy lifting or manual work, such as a factory, warehouse or building site.
While they certainly can affect workers in these sectors, any repetitive action can give rise to an RSI. For example, someone whose job revolves around typing could easily pick up an RSI such as carpal tunnel syndrome, which causes loss of feeling or a tingling sensation in the hands.
Employers have a duty to put procedures in place that protect their workers from repetitive strain injuries. This could be anything from providing machinery to help with heavy lifting to a simple pattern of regular breaks. Full health and safety training should also be provided to all staff.
If they do not do this and you develop an RSI, you may be able to make a successful claim against them.
