Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Napo is back to fight MSDs in the workplace

Since 2007, when Napo introduced his Lighten the Load film to raise awareness about work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), the still high prevalence of this serious health problem in Europe, has inspired Napo to present 6 new video clips, once again full of humour and good advice.

Early intervention, technical and organisational preventive measures, ergonomic equipment and musculoskeletal health since the school age parade from scene to scene to convey a simple message: work-related MSDs can be prevented.
