In the U.S., shoulder injuries result in more days away from work than any other work-related injury. Many activities – including reaching and lifting – can strain the body and cause injuries to the back, neck, shoulders, and limbs. To prevent shoulder injuries, make sure equipment and controls are maintained and function correctly, follow safe work practices, use required PPE, don’t overexert, maintain good posture, and stretch and take breaks regularly. It is also important to exercise and take care of yourself during non-work hours.

  • Identify and describe the main components of a human shoulder
  • Identify risk factors for shoulder injuries
