RSI and other physical discomforts
In general, PhD students spend a lot of time at their computer. Deadlines and high quality demands put them under quite a lot of stress and strain. This is a risc factor for developing RSI (repetitive strain injury): chronic pains in the neck, shoulders, arms and/or wrists. Via the opening screen on the faculty computers, all PhD students have access to the occupational health, safety and environment programmes that help prevent RSI.
More information on RSI and ways to prevent it can be found on the website of the Occupational Health, Safety and Environment department of the university. If you suffer from RSI, or any other physical complaints that are connected to your work, you can contact the faculty coordinator for occupational health, safety and environment for advice:
