RoSPA #OSHtober – Getting ergonomics right in tackling MSD risks

Margaret was asked to write an article ‘Getting ergonomics right in tackling MSD risks’ for ROSPA’s #OSHtober this year. OSHtober is RoSPA’s annual month-long workplace safety campaign which runs throughout October. This year #OSHtober raises awareness of the dangers associated with moving and handling (specifically around MSDs), and Margaret’s article highlighted the risk factors and what can be done, including links to some further resources.

“The factors that pose a risk of MSDs are not difficult to identify, and much can be done – often without significant cost – to ensure that the design of your workplace helps your employees work comfortably.”
