Within the scope of the EC funded IPA Action 2020-2022, on 27 October 2022, EU OSHA was invited, together with the Focal Point manager (Darko Docinski), to participate at an OSH conference on the topic of "Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders" organised by a national OSH association (TUTELA), that took place in the premises of the Chamber of Commerce of Skopje, North Macedonia.

Following the opening remarks by EU OSHA on the importance to reach OSH stakeholders, social partners and representatives of enterprises (especially SMEs), i.e. employers and workers, with OSH information and knowledge to ensure prevention of ill health, the FOP manager provided to the audience information on the Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2020-2022 "Lighten the Load". Finally, representatives of the hosting association presented the latest secondary legislation act tackling the issue of MSDs, i.e. the recently published new "Rulebook on OSH for the Manual Handling of Loads", adopted by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy.
