Tools for the prevention of MSDs

The Belgian Focal Point is organising a webinar on tools for the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) within the scope of the EU-OSHA Lighten the Load campaign. The webinar takes place on 30 May 2022.

Two new tools are presented:

  • the CPI Checklist - Ergonomics and MSDs: this is an accessible tool that can help the in-house prevention advisor to address MSDs in organisations and to initiate an ergonomics and MSDs policy;
  • the Ergonomics and MSDs Prevention Alert Indicators Tool: this tool includes several indicators to reflect on the ergonomics policy, MSDs prevention, the current state of play, the available figures and the priorities that can be set for all actors involved in this prevention policy (e.g. workers' representatives, in-house prevention advisor, manager from the purchasing department, HR department, line manager, in-house/external ergonomics prevention advisor, occupational physician).
