What this means to employers
For employers, health and safety, and work injury compensation managers, RSI Guard provides the ability to maintain high productivity within efficient work environments while simultaneously keeping injuries at work down to a minimum.
In short, RSI Guard reduces the risk of work accidents and repetitive stress injuries, while at the same time increasing employee productivity.
What this means to employees
Although no gadget on the planet has the ability to prevent accidents at work under all circumstances, use of RSI Guard does mean employees will be far less likely to develop repetitive stress injuries in their hands, wrists or arms, neck and back.
It will also make it less likely for office employees suffering from computer vision syndrome, an occupational illness causing dry eyes; eye strains and/or a deterioration of sight.
When no protection is provided
Employers have the responsibility to protect workers by preventing working accidents and the onset of occupational diseases.
Should your employer neglect this responsibility and you suffer a repetitive stress injury or other injury at work as the result of their negligence, you have a good chance of winning an industrial injury claim.
