Summary

 

In recent years in the workplace, organisations have put a lot of resources into education and equipment to reduce the instances of MSD’s in plant and warehouse environments. However we are now realising that incorrect posture for desk based employees can have just as serious an effect and this is causing serious issues in relation to injuries and lost time for organisations. This webinar looks at the rising numbers of MSDs being reported in the office environment and goes through the basics of ensuring your staff are protected. Items covered will include :

  • Common musculoskeletal disorders
  • Postural defects
  • Effects of poor posture
  • Elimination/reduction of risk
