Psychosocial risk factors and MSDs: what can we learn about the impact of digital technologies, prevention and return to work?


© Andreas Rudolf Ruhmanseder

A series of discussion papers and articles review the impact that psychosocial risk factors (e.g. excessive workload) can have on the development of a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD).

This includes a publication that reviews the effect that digitalisation is having on workers’ exposure to physical risk factors (e.g. repetitive tasks) for work-related MSDs.

The publications also discuss the prevention of psychosocial risks and MSDs together and present good practices for a sustainable return to work.
