Work-related MSDs: new synthesis report complements EU findings with national data

This latest synthesis report is part of a larger EU-OSHA project to analyse national and European data on work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).


The report explores the prevalence and reach of MSDs, the associated risk factors, their impact on health and their prevention in the workplace and complements EU-level findings with national data and analyses from 10 countries (Denmark, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Austria, Finland and Sweden). By sharing national data at EU level, EU-OSHA contributes to improving knowledge on MSDs among policy-makers, OSH professionals and national authorities in general.
