Repetitive Strain Injury
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is a generic term used to group a broad number of overuse injuries that affect the muscles, tendons, and nerves of the neck, upper and lower back, shoulders, arms, and hands. These overuse injuries can progress to become crippling disorders that reduce workers’ quality of life. When people think of an RSI, they focus on the hands or think only of computer workstations. To debunk this myth, we have decided to expand into other areas where repeated exposure can contribute to injuries and illnesses in the workplace. Repetitive Strain Injuries are a serious worldwide occupational health concern.
February 28, 2017 marked the 18th annual RSI PLUS Awareness Day held by OHCOW.
