I emailed Janice a 1997 article on Repetitive Motion Injuries from Advance
for Medical Laboratory Professionals that specifically mentions histotechs.

My Dad was an expert in the field of personal injury, particulary 
workman's compensation. Sounds like your workplace is jerking you around. 
I know nothing about how the laws work down under, but if you were here, 
you should immediately contact a reputable personal injury attorney, (aka 
ambulance chaser), who specializes in these kinds of cases.  Any good 
attorney will take your case for no money up front, but will charge you 
about 30% of whatever monies you recover.  You were hurt at work, you 
cannot perform your work due to your injury - their fault, their 
liability.    Not all lawyers are evil-doers.  Good luck.

use of shoulders.

I sustained an injury to my left shoulder while at
work in the lab when I fell off a defective stool and
landed on the floor hitting my shoulder. The insurance
company is refusing to pay for my treatment as their Occupational Specialist
has stated that histology work is not repetitive and in particular the
shoulder is not affected.They have requested that I provide information to
the contrary if I wish to have my case reviewed.We were using an older model
Microm where the left handle came 4/5ths of the way to the top of the
microtome which required my arm to be in a slightly raised position causing
me considerable discomfort.The lab is a research lab at a medical school and
all our staining and coverslipping were done manually in a large fume hood
that had a lowered glass door. I am hoping that some-one knows or has on
file any documented information that they can send to me relating to RMS in
particular mentioning the shoulder that I can present it to the insurer.
