§ Mr. Meacher
The Government and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recognise that RSI (or upper limb disorders, which is a more accurate term) is a serious problem, and we are taking steps to tackle it. The Health and Safety Commission proposes to include a specific programme on work-related musculoskeletal disorders in its strategic plan for 2001–04.566W
The HSE information sheet 1/00/EMSU, "Work-related upper limb disorders statistics information sheet", contains the most up-to-date information collated by HSE on this topic. I am placing a copy in the Library.
