Musculoskeletal disorders: Resources for group discussions in the workplace
Two resource kits to tackle musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the workplace are now available in many languages and can be used in combination.
The MSD conversation starters facilitate group discussions in the workplace or during training. The tool contains practical guidance to support effective communication about a musculoskeletal health problem between workers and their managers.
The "Understanding Musculoskeletal Disorders" toolkit uses more than a dozen Napo films to raise awareness among staff and suppliers, on topics such as bad postures, repetitive work, early detection of MSDs, handling loads and many more. The toolkit, which contains a ‘facilitator guidance’ and ‘discussion activities’, is also suitable for vocational training courses.
