The annual Occupational Health and Safety Day in Estonia takes place on 16 November. The aim of the event is to highlight and discuss important occupational safety and health (OSH) topics, and for the second year running the focus will be on musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) – in the framework of the Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load campaign.
Organised by the Estonian focal point, speakers focus on home-office ergonomics, smart devices and mental health in the context of MSDs.
