18/07/2012: Changing The Way We Communicate
A recent report by Ofcom (see: Ofcom website for full report) provides evidence that the way we all communicate and work is rapidly changing. The rise of texting, mobile working, smart phones & web based communication has changed the way we all go through our daily lives forever.
But it is worth considering that with new technology comes new risks to our health & wellbeing. Work related upper limb disorders (WRULD's) is a general term that covers musculoskeletal conditions which can affect the shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist or hand. Previously the terms repetitive strain or stress injury (RSI) have been used. These conditions affecting the upper limbs, which may be work-related, can be due to occupational overuse and with our ever increasing need for typing the dangers are obvious.
Wellworking offer some guidence on avoiding these issues in the Social Ergonomics section of our website and can also assist companies with compliance and best practice with our Wellworking Ergonomic Services department.
If you need more information on how technology is changing the way we work or an assessment to to ensure you or your staff are working well please contact us.
