What can you do

Find out as much as you can about RSI. Use this website, the RSI Awareness Factsheets and the other sources of information referred to.
 
Look at the risk factors inherent in your job and lifestyle. Often when people contact us it is because something has occurred, an increase in workload or change of environment, which proves to be the final straw.
 
Minimising the risks means removing as many straws as possible from the camel’s back; cutting down on repetitive tasks, improving posture and overall fitness and reducing stress.
 
Please also see the sections on trade unions, reporting of injuries, stress management and workplace assessment. These all contain suggestions on how to organise and prevent RSI.
