In the current context of confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of European work from home full-time. A new reality that can take its toll on their health. Long periods of sedentary work, lack of physical exercise, working in isolation, blurring boundaries between paid work and private life and stress are some of the risks associated with telework that may have an impact on the musculoskeletal and mental health of workers.
Our brand new MSD database of practical tools and guidance makes it easy to assess and manage many MSD risks, including from telework. It contains links to resources from all across Europe: publications, case studies, guidance, practical tools, audio-visual materials. So far, more than 550 entries are available and regular updates will follow during the life of the 2020-2022 Healthy Workplaces Campaign “Lighten the Load”.
