    Claiming for injuries due to poor ergonomics at work


    The ergonomics in the work place is all linked to the efficiency of the company and of  the worker in the office. If you work under the strain of poor ergonomics at work, it can potentially lead to a work injury, but could you claim?

    Injuries caused by poor ergonomics at work

    There are many different work accidents that can occur in the work place from poor ergonomics. If the work has a poor level of worker efficiency this could lead to shortcuts being taken which can easily lead to an accident at work.

    One such shortcut that could easily lead to a work injury is the employee’s work station. This is a vital part to any office worker’s environment and is most likely where they will spend the majority of their time. Due to this. If it isn’t set up right then work injuries can be sustained.

    All employee’s should fill out a work station questionnaire which checks that their work area is up to scratch and suitable for their needs. Work injuries can be sustained if the worker has to strain or stretch muscles consistently to work properly. This could be straining their neck to see their computer properly or not having the proper wrist support near the keyboard.

    Do these types of work injuries, caused by poor ergonomics, class as a reason to claim?

    The simple answer to this is yes. Due to the poor ergonomics of the workplace you may have sustained a painful work injury therefore, the company are at fault and are liable.
