Ergonomics Issues

Employee reports soreness on the right upper arm, shoulder, and neck.  Believes it is a result of the contractor's office set up because the person feels the pain most when they are at work.  Employee reports not having injured their arm at any other time.  Per visit to the site nurse, the contractor was given icy/hot and asked to return in two day for re-evaluation.  The contractor returned to the site nurse for the follow up appointment and it was recommended they see an occupational physician.

 1.    Ask for an ergonomic assessment when feeling pain.

2.    Request any needed ergonomic equipment when needed/identified.
