Designing musculoskeletal work to be safe and healthy – from assessment to prevention

Lifting and carrying heavy loads, working in an awkward position, performing activities requiring little movement or frequently repeating the same movement can lead to excess strain on the human musculoskeletal system. Musculoskeletal disorders are therefore still among the most common occupational diseases reported to the German social accident insurance system and are responsible for almost a quarter of all absentee days in German companies.

This event provides an overview of the current status of the Joint German Occupational Safety and Health Strategy (GDA) on good work design for musculoskeletal activities and discusses procedures and methods for recording musculoskeletal hazards and identifying suitable preventive measures.

Innovative examples from the fields of long-term care and transportation of how to reduce physical strain when moving persons with reduced mobility will be presented and discussed with the audience.
