Repetitive Motion Injuries

Some jobs require that you repeat the same hand motion over and over again. These kind of jobs may cause what is known as repetitive motion injuries. Early symptoms include numbness and tingling in the fingers and hand.

If you start having these symptoms, take a break. Also, simple hand exercises such as flexing the wrist and stretching the fingers will help.

If the problem persists, talk with your supervisor or safety manager.
