What are repetitive stress disorders?

Repetitive stress disorders (RSDs) are cumulative injuries, which result from prolonged repeated, forceful, or awkward movements. Common examples include carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis. More than half of all workplace injuries are RSDs; because these disorders occur on the job, they are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. There are a number of steps employers can take to reduce the incidence of RSDs, with ergonomic adjustments topping the list. For more information, see Nolo’s article Repetitive Stress Injuries in the Workplace.
