Repetitive Strain Injury Day (RSI Day)
Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) refers to a category of injuries involving damage to muscles, tendons and nerves caused by overuse or misuse. For over 20 years the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) has been affiliated with this international event in order to increase awareness and prevention of these disorders.

|Argentina||Egypt||Indonesia||New Zealand||South Korea|
|China||Greece||Mexico||Saudi Arabia||United Arab Emirates|
|Columbia||Hungary||Morocco||Scotland||United States of America|
