Sore Neck

I have a sore neck. This is actually a sporting injury but it brought me back to thoughts on RSI.

RSI or repetitive strain injury can be brought on by typing away at a computer keyboard due to the computer setup, envirnoment or the posture of the person using the computer. Lots of companies don't recognise that this is a problem, and make life as difficult as possible for employees suffering from the condition. The best thing in the first place is to stop it occuring by having Display Screen Assessments for all new staff within 6 weeks of them joining. Unfortunately some companies including very large ones are too mean to do this and think it's better for them to sued than to look after the health of individuals.
