Repetitive strain incident


You may be suffering from a repetitive strain incident or injury if you experience regular

  • Stiffness in your upper body
  • Cramp
  • Tingling in your hands and fingers
  • Weakness

It could be that this has happened because you work in an office and you carry out repetitive tasks like using a keyboard constantly at speed all day. On the other hand, it may be that you are a factory worker on a production line doing the same task all day and every day. It can be caused by working at a highly intense rate for a long period without a rest or even because the angle that you are working at promotes poor posture.

Whatever the reason that you have got your symptoms, your employer is required by law to do a risk assessment when you start work for the company to ensure that you are working in a comfortable and safe manner. This includes making sure that you take regular rest breaks while you are working.

So what if none of this has happened and you have explained to your boss that you are working for too long in cramped conditions that is affecting your health but got nowhere? Basically, you may have to think about instigating a compensation claim. Before, you think that this is not possible because you would be dismissed. It is illegal for an employer to dismiss an employee that has filed a claim against them.
