<p>This year’s European Week for Safety and Health at Work is raising awareness about the <a href="https://healthy-workplaces.eu/en">Healthy Workplaces Campaign 20-22</a>, running since October 2020. With the topic: <strong>Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load</strong>, the campign tackles the prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).</p>
<p>The campaign is putting the focus on different "<a href="https://healthy-workplaces.eu/en/about-topic/priority-areas&quot; target="_self">priority areas</a>" within the wide topic of MSDs, and until now <strong>Prevention, Facts and Figures, Chronic Conditions and <a href="https://healthy-workplaces.eu/en&quot; data-titleBM="&lt;p&gt;It is a job in which you are seated for most of the time that you are working, or sitting continuously for long periods of time.&lt;/p&gt;" data="" class="lexicon-term">Sedentary work</a></strong> have gathered a variety of resources, such as info sheets, infographics, presentations, reports, OSHwiki articles and many more. Many <a href="https://healthy-workplaces.eu/en/media-centre/news&quot; target="_self">news articles</a> have been also published since October 2020 highlighting different angles of these priority areas. <strong>Worker diversity</strong> is the next priority area to be the focus from November 2021 to January 2022. </p>
