Praktiske værktøjer og vejledning om muskel- og skeletbesvær
For at gøre det let for arbejdspladserne at vurdere og håndtere risici forbundet med muskel- og skeletbesvær har vi bygget vores brugervenlige database op omkring en række praktiske værktøjer og vejledningsmaterialer udviklet på EU- og landsplan.
Ressourcerne omfatter casestudier og visuelle materialer og dækker en lang række sektorer, faretyper og forebyggelsesmetoder. Nogle er specifikt rettet mod bestemte aktører, f.eks. arbejdsgivere, arbejdstagere eller ledere, og nogle mod håndteringen af muskel- og skeletbesvær blandt bestemte grupper af arbejdstagere. Du kan søge i ressourcerne på disse eller flere andre kategorier. Aldrig har det været lettere at finde lige det, du leder efter.
