Repetitive Strain Injury Claims
Repetitive Strain, also referred to as RSI, is a generic term that can identify various soft tissue injuries caused by an adverse action repeated over a duration of months or years. RSI can happen in any work environment including kitchens, offices, and factories. Its cause and effects are widely recognised, meaning that it should not occur in a responsibly run workplace.
If you believe you have suffered from repetitive strain injury, then contact The Compensation Experts. Our advisors can talk to you about your situation and let you know whether you may be entitled to payment.
What is an RSI Claim?
RSI can be caused by various factors including:
- A poorly designed workstation which does not suit the user’s needs. For example, the desk may be the wrong height, or they may have to stretch to use their keyboard.
- Regular heavy lifting
- Holding the body in the same position for an extended period such as when using a keyboard, or holding a phone
- Repeating the same movement when operating machinery, including on a production line
You can develop RSI from working in an office, on a construction site, in a factory, or virtually any other working environment. Employers can help prevent cases of RSI by:
- Undertaking a risk assessment of a worker’s station
- Providing necessary equipment to make a workspace suitable, such as an ergonomic mouse, or a height adjustable chair
- Educating staff on safe working practices and how they can help prevent office injuries and RSI
As well as employers having a responsibility, employees also have a duty to keep their workspace safe. An employer is not liable for an injury if, for example, their employee does not cooperate with a risk assessment, or if their circumstances change and they do not notify their employer. An example of this would be if they injured themselves outside of work and needed to make changes in work to accommodate their injury.
