Are Repetitive Motion Injuries Hurting Your Business?

Employees who are suffering from repetitive motion injuries are not able to work at their ultimate performance level, causing decreased productivity and often incurring medical problems that can lead to disability claims.

Carpal tunnel syndrome accounts for nearly 58 percent of injuries with more than 20 lost work days. (OSHA–Best Review)
The median lost time for carpal tunnel is 27 days, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics data, the highest among all work-related injury or illnesses. Even fractures (20) and amputations (18) fall behind carpal tunnel syndrome in lost work days.

Repetitive motion injuries, another type of cumulative trauma, produce the longest absences of other leading events or exposures. Repetitive tasks such as scanning groceries and keyboarding are among the types of repetitive tasks that drive a high median of 17 days away from work (DOL data).

How Can You Prevent This?

For repetitive tasks rotate the jobs no less than every 2 hours
Look for ergonomic aids like job specific tools to minimize the trauma
Look for people that do things with weird body positions and methods that require hyper-extending a joint, etc.
Encourage stretching.
