  • Focal dystonia.
  • Radial tunnel syndrome.
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome.
  • DeQuervain’s syndrome.

What causes a repetitive strain injury?

Improper tool use, typing, heavy lifting and incorrect posture while sitting for prolonged periods can all lead to RSI. For example workers who have to type and use computers excessively are known to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

Employers should assess all workplace risks to identify problem areas and implement changes to protect workers. If you work doing a repetitive job then it is your employer's responsibility to implement changes, such as the use of more ergonomic equipment to help reduce or prevent the onset of injury.

If your employer has failed to keep you safe from injury you could be due compensation. To find out if you have a valid claim call us on 0800 633 5730.
