Atlanta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/14/2017 -- The premier workers' compensation lawyer from Atlanta, Darwin Johnson, released a write up on his firm's site that gives office workers a few tips to help them prevent repetitive strain injuries. According to the article, while most people consider workers' compensation insurance as applying to single incidents at work, it can also be applied to repetitive strain injuries.
"While repetitive strain injuries are covered under workers' comp, it's best to prevent them altogether," said Johnson.
His article sheds light on three simple tasks that office workers can focus on to enhance their potential for repetitive strains that lead to serious damage. The first one notes the importance of good posture. According to Johnson, focusing on posture can go a long way in preventing back strains.
"Habits are tough to break, especially when it comes to posture, but there are a number of great posture braces on the market that help hold a person's body in place," said Johnson. "The strap systems are minimally noticeable, and don't cause discomfort."
Johnson also suggests keeping computer monitors and mice at a proper distance away from the eyes. Computer monitors should sit about 30 inches away from one's eyes, and should not tilt in such a way that causes eye-straining glare or warped images. Furthermore, a mouse should sit directly next to a worker's keyboard, at close to table-level height.
"These basic considerations can save you from problems sparked by eye strain and hand strain," said Johnson.
Finally, Johnson is encouraging workers to learn keyboard shortcuts, which can help reduce hand strains caused by unnecessary overworking. Some of those shortcuts are listed in the article.
