- Posture: Awkward and static – anything out of “neutral” especially if sustained is potentially problematic. Prolonged sitting or standing without opportunity to break or change position is also a concern.
- Force: Weights lifted/carried or forces applied to push/pull multiplied by the frequency and/or duration can contribute to injury, especially if there is insufficient time to recover from those exertions.
- Repetition: Exertions per minute plus the duration of the activity might contribute to injury, especially if there is insufficient time to recover from those exertions.
- Lack of recovery time: Opportunities to break from static postures, rest from forceful exertions, or repetitive activities is essential to injury prevention. Changing position, movement and gentle stretching increase blood flow to soft tissues, improve concentration, restore energy and enhance productivity.
