"Stress Injuries" lecture June 10th at 6:30 PM

Throughout history, hand, wrist and arm disorders, including what we call today "Repetitive Stress Injuries" and "Cumulative Stress Disorders" have been a problem for all types of people and all types of trades. Even the term "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome" has been referred to by dozens of names over hundreds of years and has afflicted people as diverse as stagecoach drivers and telegraph operators. But all have one thing in common ... pain and discomfort.

Join OSHA and Applied Ergonomics specialist Steven M. Jones on Wednesday evening, June 10th at 6:30 PM for an entertaining lecture on the history and causes of this problem, and more importantly the proactive steps people can take to help prevent such injuries at home and in the workplace. Steve has written a 20 page illustrated booklet on repetitive stress injuries entitled "Stagecoach Hands", which will be available free to all who attend.

Steven Jones holds two advanced degrees from Southern Connecticut State University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has published articles on musculoskeletal injuries, and is an authorized instructor in HAZMAT, CPR/AED and First Aid, the National Traffic Safety Institute, and the Brain Trauma Foundation. He is a resident of Hampton, NH.

This lecture is free and open to the public, with time set aside after the lecture for questions from the audience. For more information, please contact Darrell Eifert at 926-3368.
