Start the discussion on MSDs

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Start the discussion on MSDs

EU-OSHA provides two resource kits to tackle musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the workplace:

  • A document – available in many languages – which includes practical guidance among others on how to promote effective communication between workers and their managers about MSDs.
  • A “toolbox” for understanding MSDs with a dozen “Napo” films to raise awareness on various aspects: inappropriate postures, repetitive work, early detection of MSDs, handling of loads, etc.

The resources are also suitable for use in vocational training. They are part of EU-OSHA’s 2020-2022 campaign on the prevention of work-related MSDs.
