Lighten the Load: a Maltese perspective

With the current Healthy Workplaces campaign 2020-2022 ‘Lighten the Load’ drawing to a close, our Maltese focal point dedicates a final webinar to the topic of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

The programme will begin with an overview of the Healthy Workplaces campaign, moving on to provide detailed information on the management of work-related MSDs. The steps to be taken to complete an effective MSDs risk assessment will also be explored. Finally, the importance of ergonomics in the implementation of preventive and protective measures will be addressed.

This event marks the European Week for Safety and Health at Work 2022 in Malta.
