Exposure to risk factors at work – such as lifting heavy items, bending, and poor body postures – often result in musculoskeletal issues.
REPETITIVE MOTION INJURIES
Repetitive motion injuries (RMI) at workplaces are associated with forceful exertions, experiencing vibrations and holding sustained positions. RMI account for about 2/3 of all workplace injuries.
Chronic conditions such as arthritis are the long term byproducts of work-related ergonomic issues. However, the connections between these problems and work related issues often go undetected.
Repetitive motion injuries at workplaces are a direct economic cost of about $17 Billion a year to the US economy. The cost is manifested through medical costs and lost productivity, compensation, and wages.
