WRIST BURN (WHY YOU HURT AT WORK)

August 29, 2016

Bar and Kitchen staff develop painful issues which are the result of years of repetitive work.

Wrist burn is commonly suffered throughout the hospitality industry which is a culmination of work load placed on the wrist.

Anecdotally, wrist burn can be traced to poor technique or bad tool design backdated 100’s or possibly 1000’s of years.

Certainly historic design can be a good guide and teacher, however when design hasn’t evolved to keep up with changes in societal thinking, problems occur.

Today human centered design and Occupational Health Safety & Security (OHS&S) act as an important driver for changes in workplace tools.

Let’s hope that inspired thinkers and dreamers will one day re-invent the way we do things, so at least work place injury will be significantly reduced.
