Using the computer, keyboard and mouse are part of the basic activities of working in an office. Seemingly harmless, these activities can lead to long-term injury if certain basic ergonomic principles are not followed. Known as musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), these injuries include back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, bursitis and other ‘itis’ conditions. These injuries are the result of a poorly designed workstation:
A poorly designed workstation causes the worker to adopt an inappropriate posture, and the first symptoms appear: numbness, tingling, discomfort and pain. This is how, insidiously, a musculoskeletal lesion develops, which will take a long time to drive out of the joint where it has made its nest.
If you are an office worker, your workspace should accommodate your needs and promote good posture. The adjustment of your chair, an adequate height of your work surface or the adjustment of the position of the screen and the computer keyboard, are some of the factors that can contribute to improving your posture.
MSDs represent more than 30% of compensation claims made to the CSST and affect more than 35,000 Quebecers. A simple shoulder tendonitis leads to an average absence of 57.8 days from work. But beyond the official CSST figures and the cases listed, absenteeism and reduced productivity caused by back pain and other MSDs represent a substantial financial burden for Quebec businesses and society in general. The equation is very simple: by eliminating discomfort, pain and muscle fatigue, not only are we doing occupational health and safety prevention, but the increase in employee comfort and well-being reduces absenteeism. and increase productivity.
