Musculoskeletal Injuries

Crop and animal production in agriculture commonly require repetitive motions in sometimes-uncomfortable positions, and the physical effects of this work can sometimes manifest in musculoskeletal injuries.

These injuries can result from frequent or heavy pushing, pulling, lifting, or carrying heavy objects, prolonged awkward positions, and forceful and/or repetitive exertion of the hands; cold and vibration may exacerbate the effects. In addition, they are often directly correlated to the manual labor in question: traditionally, while dairy farmers have been at high risk for osteoarthritis in the knee, new milking technology has shifted the risks of musculoskeletal injuries to the hands, arms, and shoulders. To reduce the risks of these injuries, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends padding to reduce vibration, well-maintained tools, and reducing highly-repetitive activities whenever possible.
