Following below is a fairly comprehensive listing of the RSI and Ergonomics
related mail lists.
To subscribe to a mail list: either click on the link or email one of
the listserver addresses. Type the words subscribe, the list name, and your name. Do not
put anything else in the body of the letter or in the subject area. This will be an
automatic command listserv rather than the address you use to actually talk to the group.
The listserver will forward your request to the correct server and you will get a
confirmation Email. For example:
- TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
- MESSAGE: subscribe Sorehand John Smith
Note that you will get a different address to actually mail information that gets
distributed to the group. Many times you can not post to a list that you do not belong to.
Listserv is an automatic computer generated command recognition address. If you have a
problem just write HELP in the body of the message.

Injured Workers List (Injured-L)
Injuredworkers.online is a collaborative effort of individuals who want to do
something about how people with work related injuries and illnesses are treated by their
employers, the media, Workers Compensation Boards, and the government. Recent legislation,
Bill 99 (Ontario), has portrayed injured workers as lazy and lying, in order to cut
benefits and reduce assistance. We believe that most of the community opposes such
sterotyping and are looking for ways to fight back. This project is an opportunity to
exchange information and ideas about what causes injuries and illness at work, and what we
can do about it. We are injured workers, trade unionists, community activists, doctors and
others. We encourage anyone who has an interest in this subject to join us.
Injuredworkers.online is working towards improving conditions for injured workers and
encourages discussion and debate towards this goal. This is a closed mailing list, so you
may be asked to complete a simple statement of interest. All it requires is an
agreement to our basic principles and co-operation and contribution to discussion and
As a member of the committee developing this site and list, I can assure you
that we are all progessive people who are dedicated to improving conditions for injured
