What is a Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
If you are suffering with a repetitive strain injury, we can help you find out if you are entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
RSI (repetitive strain injury) occurs when a particular set of tendons, muscles and nerves become damaged by repetitive movement. It is common for RSI injuries to be suffered within the workplace.
Also known as Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD), RSI is often associated with a person’s everyday work activities. It can occur in various forms, including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, Vibration White Finger (VWH) and Bursitis.
RSI can be caused by working for prolonged periods of time without a break, carrying heavy loads on a repeated basis, working in cold temperatures, forceful activities or a badly organised work area that is not ergonomically sound.
Sufferers of RSI have symptoms such as pain, swelling, tingling, cramps or numbness in the neck, arms, hands or shoulders.
Prevention of RSI
Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that steps are taken to minimise your risk of suffering from RSI. For example, if you operate a keyboard, these preventative steps include ensuring a correct working position by checking both your seating and PC monitor are at the correct height for comfortable operation. Wrist rests should be made available if required. To avoid prolonged keyboard use, employees should be encouraged to take regular keyboard breaks and your employer should make you aware of the potential risks of suffering from RSI.
If you are suffering from RSI, contact us. You may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries and loss of income if you are unable to work.
