Most people don’t think of office work as particularly dangerous. While working in an office isn’t as risky as manufacturing or construction, it still has its hazards. It’s possible to sustain serious injury in the course of performing everyday tasks in the office, and it’s important to know how to avoid them.

1. Musculoskeletal Problems

Among the most common office injuries are musculoskeletal problems. Sitting at a desk for long hours of the day can result in repetitive strain injuries to the back, neck, and shoulders. Working at a computer commonly results in carpal tunnel syndrome, which affects the wrists. If you have significant back, shoulder, or joint pain after a period of working at a desk day after day, you may be able to recover workers’ compensation for a musculoskeletal injury.
