Work that Can Cause Back Injury
Any sort of job that requires manual labor could potentially cause back injury to an employee. This is especially true if heavy lifting is a frequent requirement of employment, or carrying supplies up and down stairs is routine. Employers must take responsibility for the danger they put their employees in and assist them with fair compensation should the repetition of work eventually cause a back injury.
Employees that may frequently experience back injuries include:
A back injury caused by repetitive strain may result in:
- Chronic soreness
- Discomfort when sitting or standing
- Painful muscle spasms
- Severe spinal cord injury
