I am working in a cement factory for the last 7 years and we work there from 7 am until 7pm bending heavy metal for cement products. Last year the factory got a big order and I have been working from 5am sometimes until 9pm assembling and dismantling cement cages. After each day of work I felt a bad pain in my back, shoulder and arms. I was working like that for about 3 months when I took holidays to go home and I went to the doctor. The doctor said that I have very serious problems with my back and advised against heavy work and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, my English is very basic and I never said anything at work about my pain. I also felt lucky I had that job because I needed to send money home. Can anything be done about my injury?
