EU-OSHA releases report entitled ‘Working with chronic MSDs – good practice advice’

As part of the European Healthy Workplaces ‘Lighten the load’ campaign, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work recently released a report entitled ‘Working with chronic MSDs – good practice advice’.

The report provides practical advice on issues related to working with a chronic musculoskeletal disorder (MSD), and what can be done to support individuals who have developed a chronic MSD to enable them to continue working.

The report mentions that “In Europe there are an estimated 120 million chronic musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) sufferers or one in four of the population. While MSDs have negative impacts on quality of life, they also have economic consequences, which may be as high as 2 % of gross domestic product in the EU.”
