Work-related musculoskeletal disorders: Facts and Figures — Synthesis report of 10 EU Member states reports
This synthesis report is part of a much larger project, ‘MSDs facts and figures overview: prevalence, costs and demographics of MSDs in Europe’, intended to support policy-makers at EU and national levels by providing an accurate picture of the prevalence and costs of MSDs across Europe, pulling together existing data from a number of relevant and reliable official statistical sources. This report is intended to be complementary to an overview report published with the same title and covering the EU as a whole, Work-related musculoskeletal disorders: prevalence, costs and demographics in the EU – Final report.
EU-OSHA, aware of the limitations of EU data sources related to MSDs, decided to complement and enrich EU-level findings with national data and analyses. This synthesis report intends to bring together some of these data and information published in 10 national reports on the topic (Denmark, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Austria, Finland and Sweden).
