About Back Injuries at Work

Back injuries sustained as a result of your work environment can be all too common, and sometimes the problems can be exacerbated because they go undiagnosed for long periods of time. It is your employer's responsibility to protect your safety at work and should this protection not be provided, you may be able to claim compensation for the pain and suffering caused.

There are a number of situations at work that can result in a back injury. You may have had inadequate training for your duties, or a lack of supervision or support when you have had to undertake certain tasks. Your employer may even have failed to supply you with the proper equipment for your role. 

If you have suffered a back injury or back pain as a result of a poor working environment or a negligent employer, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injury. This can cover costs such as:

  • Time spent out of work
  • Rehabilitation fees
  • General loss of quality of life

Types of Back Pain

Most people will be affected by back pain at one point or other. The most common type of back pain is in the lower back, which is sometimes referred to as lumbago. You can also be affected elsewhere, between the neck and the hips, for example.

There are numerous conditions that can lead to differing types of back pain, some of which include:

  • Slipped disc - This occurs when one of the discs in the spine presses on the nerves after being damaged
  • Frozen shoulder - This refers to inflammation around the shoulder area and can cause both stiffness and pain
  • Repetitive strain – This refers to pain felt in muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse

Common Causes

There are many different potential causes of back injuries and back pain at work. They include:

  • Lifting, pushing, pulling or dragging heavy loads
  • Repetitive tasks, such as packing boxes
  • Long-distance driving, particularly over rough ground
  • Prolonged periods spent in one position
  • Poor posture while sat at your desk
