Workplace injuries refer to any injury or illness that has been caused by factors in your place of work. They can be the result of a one off accident, from performing repetitive tasks, or from mild but continuous strain on a particular part of the body. They can affect people in any industry and can manifest in many different ways.
The most common workplace injuries include repetitive strain injuries and back and neck problems from poor lifting techniques. Poor posture is also a common complaint and can come as a result of sitting for long periods of time and hunching over a computer. Performing the same task repeatedly can also place strain on different parts of your body, while stress in the workplace can manifest itself in multiple health issues.
Workplace injury symptoms vary enormously depending on the job you do and the hazards that are involved. However, common symptoms include headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis and many more.
