Common work related injuries
Unfortunately, a significant number of people do suffer work related injuries and illnesses each year. Although the causes of such injuries and illnesses do vary, there are some conditions which are commonly reported as work related injuries, including:
Increasingly hectic schedules can leave people feeling that they’re unable to cope. With more and more people taking time off work due to stress, it seems that this is becoming more and more of a problem. Whilst some employers are sensitive to the needs of their employees, others may push employees too hard or demand unrealistic results which can lead to an employee struggling to cope and needing to take time off.
Both office workers and manual worker can struggle with back problems. As manual workers are often doing physical work for twelve or more hours per day, this can eventually lead to on-going back problems. Although office workers may do little in the way of manual work, many do use computers for lengthy periods. Sitting at a desk and using a computer for long periods of time can lead to people hunching their shoulders or using the incorrect posture. In turn, this can lead to persistent back ache and back problems.
As it’s a form of repetitive strain injury, carpal tunnel can be experienced by anyone who uses repetitive motions in their job. For example, a supermarket cashier or anyone using a keyboard could be at risk of developing this type of injury.
