Repetitive Strain Injuries

Workplace Accidents  >  Repetitive Strain Injuries

Repetitive strain injuries can occur in a workplace when employees carry out repetitive tasks without job rotation, aids or adequate breaks.

Working on repetitive tasks, regardless of work setting and activity, can cause injury. Regardless of the task your employer has a duty to risk assess the task, train you, consider job rotation and react to any complaints you have made in the past in regards to this task.

Repetitive strain injuries can occur whilst carrying out minor physical tasks, such as typing, and your employer should take more care when asking you to carry out a heavily physical repetitive task.
