shutterstock_93499285Work injuries associated with poor posture, overexertion and repeated tasks are costly. The good news is they are preventable in most cases, if you know what ergonomic issues to look for, and these risks can often be eliminated with early intervention.

Perform regular ergonomic assessments, and keep an eye out for these common risk factors:

• Improper workstation setup

• Overexertion from lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling, reaching or stretching

• Repetitive motions

• Working in awkward positions

• Sitting or standing too long in one position

• Using excessive force
