Sept. 25-Oct. 1: Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention Week
Sept. 25 – Oct. 1 is Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention Week in Newfoundland and Labrador. Almost 70% of all workplace injuries reported to WorkplaceNL are soft-tissue related, including sprains, strains or inflammation of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves or related soft tissues. So WorkplaceNL encourages everyone to Change it Up! at work. Changing your posture every 20-30 minutes helps to relieve your muscles and avoid soft-tissue injuries.
