Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > BELGIUM: 3 animated films on MSDs from SPF Employment

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the main cause of absence from work in Belgium. To help companies prevent them in the long term, the Federal Public Service Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue (SPF Employment) offers 3 easily accessible animated films:

  1. About MSDs
  2. An MSD plan in 5 steps : Identify, Conduct a risk analysis, Develop an action plan, Develop the plan, Evaluate the action plan
  3. TMS: the 5-step plan in practice.

The SPF stresses the importance of involving all actors in the company in all stages, starting with the line management and the workers. Thanks to their knowledge of the field, they are able to take the necessary initiatives during the 5 steps. It is also important to communicate the results of all steps in the workplace. In the face of certain difficulties, external experts are available to provide support.
