Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are one of the most common injuries reported in the UK, with over a third of them being caused by manual handling tasks. Over 200,000 MSDs are reported to be the result of manual handling, closely followed by awkward or tiring positions which are responsible for over 100,000 cases.
The most common musculoskeletal injuries are in the back, and the largest source of manual handling injuries are reported in the manufacturing, transport and social care industries.
The impact of an MSD
If you’ve sustained an MSD through an accident at work or your work itself, it can have a long-lasting impact. Injuries to the back take a long time to heal, and can greatly affect your ability to move properly and work, or even just living your normal private life.
If you’ve sustained an injury through a St Albans accident at work in the last 3 years, you are entitled to claim for compensation.
