Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) in Ontario were examined with respect to gender for the period 1986 to 1991, using data from Ontario Worker's Compensation Board systems.
Technical issues surrounding analysis of workplae injuries and theoretical suggestions raised by the data are discussed.
Analyses revealed that the risk of RSIs for women is greater than that for men.
Furthermore, women receive compensation benefits because of RSIs for a longer period than do their male counterparts, which may indicate a longer-term effect of RSIs on women.
