Understand and learn the impact of musculoskeletal disorders. Know the three main areas of MSD's and learn how to prevent musculoskeletal disorders
We all have aches and pains from time to time and the chances are that some of these may have been caused by what’s known as a musculoskeletal disorder.
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are fairly common and affect the body’s joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. They affect three main areas of the body; upper limb, back and lower limb.
When people suffer from an MSD, it can lead to a reduction in an individuals’ assessment of their general health, and to a reduction in their quality of life. MSDs are not always caused by work, but they are often made worse by the work we do and they often develop over time.
Work related MSDs account for 44% of the total number of work related illnesses worldwide.
