IOSH supports campaign to help prevent and manage work-related MSDs
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is supporting a campaign to help prevent and manage work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) that are one of the most frequent causes of health issues in Europe.
MSD ailments include back and neck pain, tendinitis, hand-arm vibration syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome, which are primarily caused or aggravated by work or the working environment.
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is aiming to raise awareness of MSDs and their impact on individuals, business and society though its Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load campaign.
It is calling on employers, managers and employees to work together to create lasting improvements – and IOSH is delighted to announce its status as an official partner to mark European Week for Safety and Health at Work, which starts today.
