Whether you do office work or manual labor, ergonomics comes into play. If your job involves any kind of repetitive motion – typing, filing, line work, etc. – you’re at risk for cumulative trauma disorder (CTD). If your job requires long periods of sitting, lifting, or standing, you’re at risk to contract a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD).
Ergonomic injuries can be avoided. Become informed about ergonomics to learn more about how to keep yourself comfortable, safe and healthy at work. Contact your company's occupational health department for a workplace ergonomic assessment.
