France: The TMS Pros programme and other initiatives to tackle MSDs

Keywords:Campaign 2020-2022, Musculoskeletal disorders, Health surveillance

This case study shows that the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in France is very high and that MSDs are a leading cause of occupational disease. MSDs have been addressed through a series of initiatives, including support schemes and guidance.

The TMS Pros programme offers businesses support to prevent work-related MSDs and provides financial support to small and medium-sized enterprises.

To improve the epidemiological surveillance of occupational risks in France, a system for monitoring work-related health problems called CONSTANCES has been set up. The programme will improve understanding of the links between occupational factors and health problems and provide a strong evidence base for policy decisions.
