Shoulder Injury Prevention

Shoulder injuries are associated with postures that place heavy loads on its muscles and tendons.   Because the arm works as a large lever, the shoulder can encounter a tremendous amount of stress.  The shoulder joint is a “ball and socket” joint that allows multi-directional movement. It sacrifices stability for mobility and because of this it’s more susceptible to injury.

Help prevent shoulder injuries by:

  • Recognizing and reporting early signs of a shoulder stress and strain can help prevent serious injury.
  • When an early report is received the cause (root cause) of the stress and strain can be identified and steps taken to reduce the stress and/or move the employee to a different job.
  • As with all work related injuries, shoulder injuries should be reported as soon as possible.
