Priority areas

The ‘Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load’ campaign is organised into several priority areas, which are promoted using special communication and promotion packs throughout the campaign. Each area covers a specific topic related to MSDs. A range of materials, including reports, infosheets, infographics and case studies, are released every three to four months to maintain the campaign’s momentum.
