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.

The importance of onboarding

The importance of onboarding can be understood from the fact that it starts with the induction of the new hires and acclimatizes them with all the important aspects of the new organization, such as the culture, environment, people, and the business. In the light of the important elements that go into onboarding; it is a fallacy and a misconception to assume that it is yet another ritual that HR has to perform with new employees, hand them a cup of coffee and carry out the paperwork.Onboarding…See More
