Bill,

Thank-You.

On the surface an increase in CTS claims does seem strange. There are a couple of possibilities that may be contributing to this increasing trend. 1) Typically reduced hours and slower production trends means changes have been made to job tasks. People tend to be performing more and different movements. This opens up new opportunities for poor postures and biomechanics to become part of the process. 2) More time away from the job means more time to enjoy life and take advantage of hobbies. Sometimes these hobbies are repetitive (knitting, chopping wood, etc.) in nature, sometimes they are vibratory (motorcycling).
Either one of these two changes could be enough to contribute to CTS symptoms.

Safety Sign Colors and International Standards

Colors make a difference to our environment. They help us analyze the surroundings and distinguish between objects. We recognize plants as green and the sky as blue, whereas a frog, for example, can be either green or blue. Deviant colors, in this case blue, warns us about poisonousness. If we detect unusual colors in our food, for example, we associate them with rottenness, which then activates a warning in our mind “Don’t eat!” Colors cause diverse feelings and opinions, and even distinct…See More
