Healthy Workplaces Seminar - Dublin
The Health and Safety Authority, with the support of EU-OSHA, invites you to attend our upcoming event on Healthy Workplaces, focusing especially on MSD.
The 2019 European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks found that 65% of establishments identified repetitive hand or arm movements as a risk factor for MSD (musculoskeletal disorder). Prolonged sitting – often considered a new or emerging MSD risk – was also reported as a risk factor by 61% of those surveyed.
Work-related MSDs can be highly detrimental to an individual’s quality of life and ability to work, and are one of the most common causes of disability, sick leave and early retirement.
This seminar on Healthy Workplaces will provide employers and employees with an understanding of the current health and safety issues arising in workplaces across Ireland and how best to assess risk and implement best practice changes. We will also introduce BeSMART.ie, the free online tool that lets you generate your own workplace risk assessments and safety statement, in addition to other HSA supports for both employees and employers.
Useful case studies on how organisations have managed ergonomic risks in their workplace will also be presented, while guest speakers will be in attendance to discuss occupational health, workplace stress, and the future of work.
