Hungary – Tackling MSDs in the workplace through prevention and best practice

MSDs are preventable and manageable, and a wide range of practical tips and best practice are out there to help workplaces get started.

On 28 April, the Hungarian focal point is holding an online conference to promote the messages of the Healthy Workplaces campaign, explain the merits of early prevention and provide practical advice and tips on tackling MSDs in the workplace.

Insights are provided by medical, labour safety and occupational medicine experts from the public and private sectors.
