Did you know that musculoskeletal injuries are the most common occupational injuries and are caused by overexertion, fatigue, prolonged static posture, frequent or repetitive stretching or heavy lifting? These affect your tendons, muscles and joints. Other common injuries occur in the workplace as a result of falling because of wet or slippery surfaces, objects on the floor, loose carpeting or inadequate lighting.
