Repetitive strain injury, or RSI for short, is one of the most common work-related injuries suffered by workers in Worcester. In this article, we’re going to tell you what you need to know if you’re thinking about making a claim for compensation.

What is RSI?

RSI refers to any work-related injury to the muscles, tendons and nerves of your neck, shoulders, arms, hands or wrists. There are two main forms of RSI: localised and diffused. If your symptoms are confined to a single part of your body, your doctor may diagnose you with localised RSI, while if you cannot determine the exact location of your injury, you may have diffused RSI.

Common symptoms of RSI include:

• Pain and stiffness
• Tingling
• Numbness
• Swelling in the hands or forearms
• A feeling of heaviness in the arms or wrists

If left untreated, RSI can cause permanent damage to your body.

Who is at risk of RSI?

If your job involves working long hours at a computer, you are likely to be at a high risk of developing RSI. To prevent RSI, you should:

• Adjust your workstation
• Take regular rest breaks
• Vary your tasks
• Work to the health and safety guidelines provided by your employer

How can an employer prevent you from suffering from RSI?

Your employer has a legal duty to risk assess hazardous tasks and equipment. Hazardous in this context means anything at work that may cause you to suffer from an injury. If you work at a computer, your employer should follow the Display Screen Equipment Regulations provided by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

You may be able to make a personal injury claim against your employer if you sustain a repetitive strain injury as a result of your unsafe working conditions. To make a claim, you will require specialist legal advice from a trained accident solicitor in Worcester.
