Connecting the Learning WHAT FACTORS WERE CITED AS
Bank staff "driver to injury"
Keyboard operators at the Midland Bank's factory-style processing centre at Frimley,
Surrey developed severe cases of RSI after their work rate was sharply increased, a
court was told yesterday.
Five former part-time workers who put cheque details into computers are claiming
compensation for upper limb disorders including aches, stiffness and shooting pains in
the arms, fingers, wrists, shoulders and necks.
The five former workers, all women, were required to key in transaction records at an
intensive stroke rate, on inadequately designed equipment, with poor working posture
and negligible training. There was a lack of breaks or variation of tasks and there was
strong pressure on staff to maintain and increase speed. The fastest operators - who
keyed 4 strokes a second with their right hand, while holding cheques in their left -
were awarded gold badges and their names were publicised by the bank.
In 1989, the Midland Bank had to pay £45,000 compensation to an RSI sufferer.

Mr A Gibson

An interesting resource which covers the subject fully. There are tasks which students could have a go and and then compare with the one in the resource or other students. Good for encouraging collaborative working.
