RSI or WRULD Claims
Repetitive Strain Injury is a generic term for a wide range of Work Related Upper Limb Disorders. RSI or WRULD usually affect the soft tissues in the fingers, arms, shoulder and neck. Symptoms can include pain, tingling, and loss of feeling or sensation. The condition can be temporary or permanent.
The condition can be caused or made worse by repetitive work such as display screen work or work with vibrating tools. Employers have a duty to identify repetitive work tasks and to assess the risk of injury. The employer must also reduce and mange the risk of injury.
If you carry out work which is repetitive in nature and have any of the above symptoms your should seek advice from your GP.
