Understanding MSDs with Napo

Napo comes to the aid of workplaces with a new online toolkit to raise awareness of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and to deliver MSD-related advice.

The "Understanding Musculoskeletal Disorders" toolkit makes use of existing Napo films and contains 14 different activities to facilitate group discussions in organisations with their own staff and the workers in their supply chains.

Office work, load handling, repetitive tasks, static and awkward postures as well as their impact on workers’ health are covered by the toolkit. In addition, workplace and organisational prevention measures are explored within the participatory activities.

The toolkit is also suitable for use within vocational training courses.

This toolkit can be used in combination with Conversation starters for workplace discussions about musculoskeletal disorders
