Ergonomic injuries occur when an employee lifts something that is too heavy, repeats a motion for an extended period of time, or sits stationary for too long. These injuries can often lead to chronic conditions like back pain and pain caused by poor posture or strains. Employers can avoid injuries like these by encouraging and demonstrating proper posture at a desk, providing breaks in which employees can move around or rest from heavy lifting, and demonstrating the proper way to lift heavy objects.
