Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTD's) are the number one worker's compensation claim injury in the United States. But common sense measures like changes in work practices and working conditions can dramatically reduce, even eliminate, CTD's. Emphasizing management and worker accountability, this new book provides practical, cost-effective approaches to preventing CTD's. Using numerous case studies, diagrams, illustrations, and checklists, the author explains what CTD's are, how they are diagnosed, and what measures can be used to prevent their onset. The current thinking on treatment is also discussed. You'll learn which employees are most likely to develop CTD's; how work can be fit to the worker to prevent CTD's; the most common symptoms of CTD's; the truth about wrist, back and other supports; the costs, benefits, and effectiveness of CTD prevention programs; and how to develop and implement an effective CTD prevention program.
