State Fund Safety Blog – Headsets Help Reduce Head and Neck Injuries

August 30, 2018

Talking on the phone can give you a headache. It can also cause a pain in your neck. And not always due to whom you’re talking to or what you’re talking about.

Simply put, the way you hold your phone can put you at risk of injury.

In today’s work environment, workers often put themselves at risk of injury by pinning (cradling) the phone between their ear and shoulder to free up their hands to do something else.

Visit our Safety Blog to learn more about this injury risk and how one quick workplace adjustment can help your employees avoid it.

Our blog also features articles on a variety of other safety topics and information on upcoming seminars. You can also submit your own safety questions and subscribe for more safety content.
