Employers have a responsibility to uphold the health and safety of their employees. Failure to meet these responsibilities may result in serious legal liabilities.

Repetitive motion aggravates the carpal tunnel; however, doing specific wrist exercises designed to help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome can reduce these types of injuries.
