Abstract:
These articles give many examples of good practice in mitigating MSDs in the workplace from Europe and further
afield. These include simple practical measures such as providing lifting hoists to ensure that nurses do not have to
lift patients manually, new diagnostic methods, and systematic, practical procedures for identifying and alleviating
risk factors for MSDs in a variety of different work environments. Individual publicity campaigns from several countries
are cited to provide examples of how education and information can help fight the problem.
