Is your shoulder stiff after a day at work? Can you rotate your arm? Do you feel as though it is not operating at full strength?


A shoulder injury can occur because of a repetitive process and many jobs can aggravate the shoulder. Pain is the most common symptom of a shoulder injury and early intervention is one of the best forms of treatment.


To reduce the risk of shoulder injuries, workers can:

  • Keep elbows and knees bent at a 90-degree angle when working.
  • Make sure feet are supported on the floor or use a footstool.
  • Take posture breaks and exercise for several minutes every hour.
  • Follow safe lifting techniques: Face the object to be lifted, and keep the back as straight as possible by bending and using legs for lifting power.
  • Avoid reaching to place or retrieve heavy objects stored up high. Use a stable platform or step stool.

To receive further education on protecting against shoulder injuries, you are invited to complete our free online course titled Workplace Ergonomics: Online Courses & Registration
