Good practices in the health, commerce, catering, waste treatment and electronics sectors
The Portuguese focal point holds a series of webinars during the European Week for Safety and Health at Work to share examples of good practice and policy initiatives around the prevention and management of work-related musculoskeletal injuries.
Each webinar sees experts from different sectors (health on 25 October; commerce on 26 October; catering on 28 October; and waste treatment and electronics on 29 October) share their experiences and good practices in preventing work-related musculoskeletal injuries.
