Injured at Work?

work injury

Many people are surprised to find out that the majority of work injuries do not occur because of serious accidents. The truth is that most injuries in the workplace happen from overuse injuries. Each year in the United States millions of dollars are spent to help individuals with this problem. In this article you will learn about how to improve your outcome if you have been injured.

The most common of all the risk factors associated with work injury is repetitive stress. Small tasks that happen with poor posture can create big problems over time; twisting and turning while moving boxes or even continuous typing in a poor position. You would think it’s the big package that falls on you, but it’s the small ones handled more often each day that create the majority of injuries.
