Article: 55/0709

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) has launched a database containing information on the prevalence, causes, and consequences of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The database includes a variety of practical tools and guidance materials, developed at both EU and individual country levels.

The resources include case studies and visual materials that cover a range of sectors, hazard types, and prevention measures, with some specifically aimed at certain groups of stakeholders, for example employers, workers or managers, and others designed to help in managing MSDs among specific groups of workers. The resources can be filtered by these groups and other categories, such as by country, when searching the database.
