Early symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome

Musculoskeletal disorders are those which affect the muscles, nerves and tendons in your body. Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and low back injuries are a few examples of MSDs. Many workers in different industries have to deal with MSDs. OSHA reports that MSD cases accounted for one-third of all worker injuries and illnesses in 2013. Most MSDs are preventable, but employers and employees have to work together to reduce the problems. 

Did you suffer a serious electric shock at work?

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics keeps track of statistics related to electric injuries, and the numbers indicate that 97 percent of the one million electricians in North America have suffered some kind of electric shock or injury. You do not have to be in this line of work, though, to receive a similar injury. You could have been performing a simple maintenance chore or changing a light bulb in the office when you received a shock because of faulty wiring or touching equipment that had not been de-energized.
