In my last post we discussed the issue of manual handling injuries in the workplace. In this first post for 2011 I will discuss the issue of Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS) or what used to be termed “RSI” or Repetitive Strain Injury.
Manual handling is loosely described as activities such as carrying, stacking, pushing, pulling, rolling, sliding, lifting or lowering objects.
Sue Coleman is the OHS Officer at State Records. With Safe Work Australia Week next week we thought it very timely to introduce her!
