There are different types of workers’ compensation claims. Some claims compensate injured workers for specific claims, such a hurting your back in a fall, whereas other claims compensate injured employees for continuous and cumulative claims, such as repetitive stress injuries. An example of a long-term problem is carpal tunnel syndrome caused by repetitive keyboard use.
Other examples of repetitive stress injuries or disorders (RSD) include:
• Bar code scanning
• Stocking shelves
• Sawing and Cutting
• Polishing, sanding and painting
