Work-related musculoskeletal disorders: everyone needs to be protected


Did you know that workers who face discrimination — including women, migrant and LGBTI workers — are also more at risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)? The worker diversity priority area of our Lighten the Load campaign website provides the resources needed to ensure that all workers are protected equally.

Case studies, reports, a handy presentation and info sheet — and much more — highlight the specific needs of these workers and provide guidance on how to take these needs into account when assessing MSD-related risks and designing prevention measures.
