6) I scan for more than one employer, how does this affect me as far as WRMSDs are concerned?

Many sonographers also undertake work on a private basis or for an additional employer to their main NHS employer (eg for a General Practitioner). The above considerations also apply and if the sonographer is already suffering from WRMSD these may be exacerbated, particularly if the scanning environment is poor. This may be a consideration if a claim were to be brought against a sonographer’s main employer who may have made every effort to reduce the risk of WRMSD. Every case is, however, reviewed on its individual circumstances.  The extension of working hours either for their main employer or as described above may also affect a sonographer’s risk of developing or exacerbating a WRMSD.
