3 common reasons for back pain at work

People sometimes suffer from back injuries at work. These can come from an accident, but there is a chance that they might occur as the result of normal job duties. It is imperative that all employees have a basic knowledge of back safety for their tasks. It doesn't matter if they work in an office or at a construction site. That need is still the same.

There are three common factors that might contribute to back pain at work. Minimizing these can help to reduce the likelihood that you will suffer a back injury.

  • Repetition: Doing the same task over and over again can lead to a repetitive motion injury. Stretching and using proper ergonomics can boost your safety as you work. You have to be especially careful when you are twisting or bending.
  • Lack of movement: Staying in the same position for a long time can lead to your muscles becoming stiff. This might cause problems with your back, especially if you get up quickly and start doing something physical.
  • Force: Putting too much pressure on your back can lead to an injury. This might occur if you try to lift heavy items or move them around, for example. Even trying to slide something heavy can cause a problem.

If you are injured at work, you need to seek medical care. You aren't going to help anyone if you are in pain and can't function at full capacity. Your company's workers' compensation policy can help you cover the medical bills and provide partial wage replacement if you are forced to take considerable time off work.
