Houston Neck & Back Injury Attorney
Neck and back injuries are some of the most common workplace injuries. Once this area of the body has been damaged, the injury can easily be exacerbated, leading to more serious injuries down the line. There are many techniques and procedures that can be implemented by an employer to decrease injuries to the neck and back. Such measures may include proper employee strength testing to determine an individual’s maximum weight capacity.
Employers must also ensure that employees are properly trained to perform their tasks so as to minimize back and neck injuries. Vibrating tools such as jackhammers, saws, etc. can add constant pressure on the neck and shoulders, causing new injuries and worsening existing injuries. Employers are responsible for training workers how to properly use such equipment.
