Musculoskeletal Health in the Workplace

Musculoskeletal health in the workplace – a programme has been designed and has received funding for a pilot to promote musculoskeletal health in the workplace.

The work relates closely to the WHO Strategic Objective for promoting a healthier environment, particularly in the assessment and management of occupational health hazards (WHO Strategic Objective 8).

This programme focuses on encouraging organisations to incorporate musculoskeletal health into their strategic aims and promote good musculoskeletal health throughout their workforce by educating organisations in best practices in workplace assessments, factors that affect sustainability in the workforce, measures of the impact of sustainability factors in the workplace and best practice guidelines.
