Abstract

Repetitive physical tasks, particularly executed with force or using vibrating hand tools, carry the chief risk of carpal tunnel syndrome for workers. Treatment may require removing the worker from the task or redesigning the task for the worker, while proper attention to ergonomics can prevent carpal tunnel injuries in the first place.
