If you live in Bishopton you may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) because you work, or were working in a factory where you were assembling tiny parts every day. You may also have been diagnosed with RSI because you spend your working day at a work station with a computer. You may be looking for an accident solicitor in Bishopton because of this or any other injury caused by someone else’s negligence.
Repetitive Strain Injury
Employers have a responsibility to keep their employees as safe as possible while they are at work. If you have been diagnosed with any work-related injury whatsoever, then you should contact an accident solicitor in Bishopton, or one who has an office near you.
Repetitive strain injury can be caused because your computer or work station has not been adjusted to suit your particular needs. You need to have an adjustable counter on which your PC is positioned so that it is at the optimum height for you. The screen should not be too bright, as this can cause eye problems, and it should ideally be at a twenty degree angle. You should also be provided with a footrest to aid blood circulation.
There should be a person responsible at your place of employment for carrying out health and safety checks, who should make sure that the equipment you use is suitable for you. You should also have received training in how to work so that you can avoid RSI.
