Musculoskeletal Disorders: Managing the Risk of Manual Handling and Display Screen Equipment for Workers on Site or Working from Home

The world of work is constantly changing but the pandemic has made adaptation of the work environment and working practices necessary for many organisations. In this 'new normal' era, organisations must remain mindful of MSD risks and take ongoing action to monitor and manage them. This strong focus on worker health and safety, in turn, benefits organisational performance.

To help to inform employers, we were proud to host a free webinar on how to effectively manage the risk of MSDs in your workplace and protect your home workers. This hour-long event featured experts from HSE including HM Health and Safety Inspectors and our Principal Ergonomist to discuss current guidance and principles and give some practical examples of where a best-practice, proportionate approach worked well.

We took questions during the webinar and NEBOSH and TSO joined us to highlight official resources, products and services that can help you to identify and reduce risk of injury.
