The Emergence of Tech Workplace Injuries [Infographic]
Most people associate workplace injuries with physical labor jobs, like construction or manufacturing. In reality, sitting behind a computer does not protect you from experiencing a workplace injury. Carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, muscle strains, and sitting disease—which increases your obesity risk and makes your heart attack risk equivalent to that of a smoker—are all increasingly common injuries that are emerging from tech-driven workplaces.
