What are ULDs?

Upper limb disorders (ULDs):

The way the work is organised and managed can make a significant contribution to reducing the risk of ULDs as well as make them worse.

What are the symptoms?

What causes a ULD?

The way the work is organised and managed can make a significant contribution to reducing the risk of ULDs as well as make them worse.

Workers may be more likely to suffer an upper limb problem if exposed to more than one risk factor.

These risk factors are described in more detail on the reducing and managing risk pages.

What if I have these risk factors in my workplace?

Just because a worker is exposed to these risk factors this does not necessarily mean they will end up with a ULD, or that the risks cannot be adequately controlled. For further information visit the ' how to reduce the risks' page.
