Repetitive Motion Injuries and Productivity

Performing the same motion again and again can cause a strain on the nerves, muscles, and tissues of the body. Unfortunately, sometimes this strain can take away an employee’s ability to be as productive as he or she needs to be. Post-employment screening and testing is one way that employers across the nation are seeing the effects of repetitive motion injuries, and taking action. The representatives at WorkSTEPS help employers do just this.

Common Repetitive Motion Injuries

A repetitive motion injury can take many forms, and sometimes the pain comes on quite suddenly, without warning. Depending on the type of injury, productivity may go down out of sheer inability or discomfort in the worker. Some of the more common repetitive motion injuries include the following:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis

These are three of the most common repetitive motion injuries that are reported annually among employers nationwide. They can have detrimental impact on workers’ abilities to be productive, and should be cared for and treated. Fortunately, post-employment testing can assist with identifying problems caused by such injuries.
