I am writing to ask if anyone can provide me with information on RSI, OOS or Work related Musculo-skeletal injury associated with the microtome.
I think we in histopathology all know of someone, or have personal knowledge of such injury, but perhaps we work on and say nothing!
I have some staff members who suffer badly form epicondylitis and carpel tunnel syndrome which is obviously related to microtomy, however, our national ACC will not accept it as a work related injury as they say there is no official documented evidence to support it.
Does anyone know of websites or organisations, countries where this is accepted as a work related condition where I obtain "official" documentation !!
Thanks in anticipation
