Diseases that may be contracted by our staff are listed below based on the degree of frequency:
Occupational musculoskeletal disorders have become frequent as a result of longer hours spent by staff at their desks (lack of movement).
Back and Neck: Acute pain, stiffness.
Shoulders: Pain, stiffness, loss of motion.
Arms and Legs: Acute pain, numbness, incapability.
Joints: Pain, swelling, stiffness, redness.
Working long periods in standing position carries with it the risk of upper and lower back disorders. Spinal disorders, a subdivision of musculoskeletal diseases, pose a risk for staff falling under this category. Preventative methods training given to staff and exercises shall provide protection against such diseases. This type of occupational diseases may be prevented by way of periodic medical checks and ergonomic exercises.
Human eyes make around 30 thousand movements between the monitor, keyboard and documents in the course of an 8-hour work in front of a screen.
This causes drying of the eye fluid, which leads to complaints such as burning and watering of the eyes.
Vocal cords are the most important elements of speaking. If misapplied or misused, various vocal cord problems may emerge.
When we use our voice intensively, the most frequent problem we may face is dysphonia.
