Croatia – Preventing and reducing work-related musculoskeletal disorders

One of the best ways to manage musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) is through a combination of preventive measures to control the risks – this should be a top priority in all workplaces.

This is one of the key messages of an online webinar organised by the Croatian focal point on 28 April. The event begins with an introduction to the Healthy Workplaces campaign. The focus then shifts to the risks to mobile workers of MSDs and related disorders. This is followed by a session on prevention, which includes tips on maintaining working abilities and increasing efficiency. The webinar wraps up with a session on Covid-19 as an occupational disease.

The webinar is aimed at local employers’ representatives as well as safety professionals – two of which will receive awards for their work in promoting safety at work in 2021.
