What really works when it comes to tackling work-related MSDs? Our new report identifies 25 varied initiatives — from awareness-raising campaigns to inspections and legislation — used in 14 countries, highlighting what can be done to prevent MSDs, particularly in SMEs. Six of these are explored in more depth, giving insight into how actions to prevent MSDs work in practice. This report is part of a wider project in which existing MSD prevention policies, programmes and tools have been analysed alongside with existing literature and statistical evidence on the topic.
