RSI (Repetitive strain injury) is a condition that is caused by continuing repeated movements or repetitive tasks/activities being carried out and engaging in high intensity activity for a long period of time without adequate breaks which eventually can cause overuse of the muscle and tendons.

This condition mostly affects the wrists, hands, elbows and shoulders and upper back and can be caused by  daily computer use, prolonged use of  heavy machinery or power tools as well as  number of  other  jobs that it is necessary for  the body to remain in an awkward position and/or to undertake frequent and similar movements repeatedly over a  a prolonged period of time

RSI can take many forms and includes  health conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and hand-arm vibration (HAVS).

An employer has a duty to protect their workers from the risk of injury in the workplace, and they should ensure that any risks in the workplace have been assessed appropriately. This should include making sure suitable equipment and training is provided and regular breaks are provided.
