Musculoskeletal Injuries/Signs & Symptoms
Work related musculoskeletal injuries (msi) may be caused or aggravated by work activities.
Signs and Symptoms of MSI
Signs can be seen (swelling/redness), symptoms are invisible (tingling/numbness).
Without training, an employee may use a proper workstation incorrectly and can develop signs or symptoms.
To prevent work related msi's, SFU relies on supervisors.
A supervisor whose employee reports, or who notices an employee with signs or symptoms of msi, should request a workstation assessment immediately.
Employees, who experience signs or symptoms of msi, must report this to their immediate supervisor.
