If your job involves the repetition of monotonous physical tasks, you may well start to notice that you begin to develop repetitive strain injury symptoms in Birmingham. As this could lead to a condition that could, if left untreated, develop into a serious condition that might even limit your mobility, it will be important to seek medical attention as soon as you do.
Make an appointment with your GP if you develop any aches and pains, tenderness, throbbing, cramp or pins and needles after carrying out your duties. At first, you might just suffer these sorts of symptoms immediately after finishing work, but as the condition worsens, you may start to feel some form of discomfort even while resting.
Your employer’s responsibilities and repetitive strain injury symptoms in Birmingham
Your employer will have a duty to make sure you are not at risk of developing repetitive strain injury symptoms in Birmingham while doing your job. If it fails in this duty, you might be able to sue it for a personal injury payout with the assistance of a 100% no-win, no-fee* solicitor. If you are in a high-risk job, your employer should carry out regular assessments of your duties to make sure you are not at risk of developing repetitive strain injury symptoms.
You should always receive regular breaks when carrying out monotonous tasks that could lead to a repetitive strain injury. If you work at a computer all day, your employer should carry out a work desk assessment to make sure that the position of your equipment will not put you at risk of developing a repetitive strain injury. If you have to stand all day, you should be given ample opportunity to sit down on your break.
For your part, you can make sure that you stretch regularly and stick to regular breaks. If you feel as though your employer has not taken adequate steps to ensure that you are protected from repetitive strain injury symptoms talk to your HR manager.Open Claim Calculator
