Workforce Diversity and Musculoskeletal Disorders

18/10/2021 Type: Presentations

All workers need to be equally protected from work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), regardless of their specific characteristics or circumstances. However, some groups of workers are more exposed to MSDs than the rest.


This PowerPoint presentation focuses on three groups of workers that frequently report higher exposure to health-related issues: women, migrant and LGBTI workers. And provides examples of practice, policy initiatives, and prevention measures to reduce their occupational risk and improve their working conditions.
