Cumulative Back Syndrome – CBI

Employers have a legal duty to protect your health and safety whilst you are at work, so with jobs where there is manual handling or heavy lifting there should be regular risk assessments and safety measures put in place to remove or minimise any hazard.

Back injuries can be caused a number of ways. The most common is through repetition – manual handling on a regular basis such as working on a production line, in a warehouse or in a factory, where a regular movement is performed. Another common cause is through an isolated incident, where you have suffered a back injury by performing an individual task such as lifting a heavy weight without the correct training.

If you believe you are suffering from a back injury caused by work you should contact us without delay for a free, no obligation discussion so we can assess the options available to you.
