– Elaboration of informative material, of training and awareness.
– Accompaniment and guidance via WhatsApp and telephone.
– Sorela routes carried out by intermediary agents in public spaces to inform and disseminate.

Info news: Sorela in Sant Cugat
During February and March of the year 2020 we have been doing routes in areas of Sant Cugat and contacting women who work there to explain issues related to the prevention of risks and occupational diseases.
The occupational hazards workshop was planned for March 12 in Sant Cugat, but unfortunately we were unable to do it due to the health emergency. We are sure that when we raise the State of Alarm, we can realize it.
Sant Cugat is the municipality with the most domestic workers in relation to the active population.
Your health comes first
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
It is a very recurrent disease in domestic workers.
It is a neuropathy, caused by the understanding of the middle nerve that passes through the wrist. Inflammation of the tendons due to repetitive movements while working (rubbing, ironing, cleaning glass, etc.) compresses the nerve and produces pain.
This disease usually occurs in people who use their hands to work and perform repetitive movements, such as butchers, waitresses, guitarists, or domestic workers. Find out more!
What are the symptoms?
At an advanced stage, sensitivity is lost in the fingers and the person may slip things from their hands or, for example, may not be able to open a bottle of water.
