    SCoR publishes this guidance in response to the marked increase in the number of members complaining of a range of upper limb disorders (commonly known as repetitive strain injury) including pains in the neck, arms, elbows, wrists, hands and fingers; back ache (from inappropriate seating), fatigue and eye strain which has resulted from the transition to digital equipment. The importance of adequate health and safety training provision cannot be emphasised too highly especially regarding safety aspects of operating VDUs. The SoR cannot stress how important it is for the employer's interest to be proactive and educate employees in how to avoid problems rather than be reactive and deal with possible claims for damages once employees have been injured.
