Repetitive Strain

Posted in Tubeworker's blog on Thu, 08/01/2009 - 12:19,

It seems that the fantastic shiny new ticket office kit that management installed in the Jubilee Line Extension ticket offices is not all it is cracked up to be. Worse, it appears to be a danger to staff's health and safety.

There has been an alarming number of complaints of apparent Repetitive Strain Injury from using this equipment. And management seem rather slow on the uptake in dealing with it. Tubeworker wonders whether they would be more keen to sort the problem out if people refused to work with this equipment.

There have apparently been four cases so far. But perhaps management don't want to see it widely publicised!

I think it's the ticket office machines, and in particular, the low level at which they are positioned. Will try to find out more.
