cumulative trauma injury -slightly OT

From:louise renton

Hi all,

I have become aware, over the years reading the histonet, that there are 
histologists (and also microscopists) that suffer from one sort of=20
cumulative trauma injury/repetitive strain injury related to their working 
environment - carpal tunnel syndrome, tendosynovitis etc.
Do any of you have references to cited literature specifically relating RSI 
to histology/microtomy?

This information will be used to train occupational hygienists in order to 
make them more aware that RSI occurs in laboratories as well as industry.
Many thanks
