Best practices to prevent MSDs: the call for applications is launched

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Best practices to prevent MSDs: the call for applications is launched

As part of its 2020-2022 Healthy Workplaces – Lighten the Load! campaign on the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is calling for nominations for the European Good Practice Award.

The aim is to recognise organisations that are implementing outstanding and innovative approaches to safety and health in preventing and managing MSDs in the workplace. The award helps to demonstrate the benefits of adopting preventive practices and promotes these good practices across Europe.

Each of the Agency’s focal points in the different EU countries is responsible for pre-selecting the projects to be presented at national level. The European jury will award six good practices and the winners will receive their prizes at the European Agency in Bilbao (Spain) at the end of 2022.
