EU-OSHA in collaboration with ENETOSH (European Network Education and Training in Occupational Safety and Health) organised a seminar addressing the issue of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among young people and workers. The seminar was organised in the framework of an OSH overview project on MSDs and with a view to the upcoming Healthy Workplaces campaign ‘Lighten the Load’, to start in October 2020.

The event served as an awareness-raising activity on the need to promote good musculoskeletal health at an early age. Participants exchanged ideas in small groups led by experts on four different aspects: research, policy (OSH – ergonomics), practice (mainstreaming OSH into education), and communication (body self-perception).
