RSIs, also know as musculosketal disorders (MSDs) are terms used to describe a number of painful and disabling injuries that affect the muscles, nerves and tendons.

In Canada, 2.3 million people, or 1 in 10 adults, suffer from these injuries. RSI Day helps raise awareness among workers about this type of injury and the risks associated with repetitive work.
