RSI claims – what you need to know
The term repetitive strain injury (RSI) can apply to many injuries that have developed as a result of overexertion or prolonged use.
Nerves and muscles can be damaged through overuse, which can lead to conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome. It is common for RSI to develop in workers who have spent numerous hours working at a desk, performing repetitive tasks such as being on the phone or typing for long periods of time.
Legally, employers have a responsibility to ensure that all desks have a proper ergonomic setup, and that all employees have ample breaks to reduce the risk of an RSI developing. If you are living with chronic pain and believe your employer has neglected his or her responsibility to provide a safe working environment, you may be entitled to compensation.
