Transnational good practice event on preventing MSDs

The focal points of Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and France are joining forces during the European Week for Safety and Health at Work to hold a good practice event on the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

The webinar includes a presentation of the Dutch campaign on sedentary work ‘Move every half hour. Take the step too’, and a session on achieving MSD prevention through internal training. A number of good practice examples are also presented in relation to using ergonomics to prevent MSDs as well as effective approaches to reorganising workplaces to reduce MSDs and back pain.

Taking place online, the webinar brings together company representatives, focal point representatives and OSH stakeholders.
