Back injuries in the workplace

While any body part can be injured in a workplace accident, one of the most common areas to feel pain is your back. This is because you use your back muscles for many tasks and can strain it with either a sudden movement or slowly over a long period of time. We at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry and Katz can work to get you the help you need if your back has been injured at your job in California.

 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says that there are several factors that can contribute to a back disorder. Damage can be caused by movements you are required to make, such as heavy lifting, bending and twisting. Vibrations from equipment and vehicles can also contribute to the strain, as can from poor posture as you perform these movements. In some cases, employers who require long hours can fatigue their employees and further affect their posture and physical condition.

 

Injury can occur from a sudden accident or through consistent strain, such as lifting. Holding awkward positions for a long time or pulling and pushing from uncomfortable angles can also cause stress your back muscles. In some cases, the injury can occur because you have not been shown how to lift properly or safely operate machinery.

 

Sometimes, the biggest factor is your workplace. If your work station has been poorly designed, you can be injured because of your environment. For more information on how back injuries occur in the workplace and what you can do about them, please visit our web page.
