Sonographer Work Health Safety

Workplace injuries have a high prevalence among sonographers. Musculoskeletal injuries are most often caused by the twisting of the neck and trunk during examinations; a static posture; and the maintenance of downward pressure on the ultrasound transducer. There are also social and emotional pressures associated with the essential diagnostic work that sonographers undertake.

The ASA's workplace health and safety reports help inform the development of resources and support that address workplace health and safety issues for sonographers.

The ASA also supports changes in work practices and the working environment that make workplaces safer and help to improve the physical and mental health of sonographers as well as return to work polices should an injury occur.
