Croatia – Identifying and preventing the most common work-related musculoskeletal disorders

As part of the many events taking place across Europe to mark the European Week for Safety and Health at work, the Croatian Focal Point is holding a webinar to launch the Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load Campaign 2020-22 in Croatia. The webinar provides information about the aims and objectives of the campaign, and shines a spotlight on the prevention and management of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in Croatia. Speakers look at the most common MSDs associated with work along with how to implement effective preventive measures. The webinar concludes with some fun and educational Napo videos.

The webinar is useful for all participants with an interest in implementing good OSH practices in the workplace, especially those wanting to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders, or those with an interest in becoming involved with the campaign.
