Why ergonomic injuries can be dangerous if not addressed

This article was sponsored by Avetta.

As working from home arrangements have shifted to accommodate new ways of working, so has the management of ergonomic injury – which has become more complex.

Even in sedentary jobs, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) can develop over time. And these ergonomic concerns can become more dangerous if not addressed. Ergonomic injuries are also increasingly prevalent among the Canadian workforce.

Studies show that around one in every 10 Canadians suffer from Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). And while the physical component obviously plays a huge part, so does mental health. Supply chain expert Avetta says that companies which continue to invest in total worker wellness initiatives see a corresponding reduction in ergonomic injuries – and this whether working remotely or in the office.
