E-learning Course Introduction

The overuse of muscles in the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders can lead to occupational overuse syndrome, or RSI. RSI risk assessment is designed to give managers the skills needed to quickly identify those in the workplace at risk of RSI and how to find ways of reducing the risks using safe methods of work.

The RSI risk assessment course is delivered online and it provides managers with the following information which can be implemented in the workplace:

  • Environmental factors
  • Existing medical conditions and RSI
  • The importance of activity breaks
  • Posture
  • Stress caused by contact
  • Static exertion
  • Repetitive movements
