Work related MSDs which include those of the upper extremities, neck, and lower back are one of the leading causes of injuries and lost workdays.
Workers in many different occupations and industries can be exposed to risk factors such as when lifting heavy items, bending, reaching overhead, pushing and pulling heavy loads, performing repetitive tasks, and working in awkward body positions.
Work-related MSDs can be prevented through intelligent use of ergonomics – fitting the job to the person. A variety of products can help lessen muscle fatigue and increase productivity, thus reducing the number and severity of work-related MSDs.
