In light of the recently launched Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load campaign 2020-22,  the German focal point is holding a national network meeting on 23 November. The event introduces the new EU-OSHA campaign, which aims to encourage employers and workers to implement good practice measures for the prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Speakers discuss news related to occupational safety and health from both European and national levels, provide an overview of the new campaign, and review the plans for 2021 campaign activities. The webinar also introduces new activities relating to Covid-19 and new partners.
