Description

Even today, there are still many misconceptions about MSDs and their prevention. After the first clip aimed at combating the preconceived idea about MSD prevention, "To prevent MSDs, you just have to show the right gestures and postures", a second part is proposed: "With age, it's normal to have MSDs! " The aim of this film is to show that it is possible to prevent MSDs throughout professional careers, by implementing various prevention actions, and thus enable people to retire with their health preserved. Indeed, getting older at work does not necessarily mean having MSDs.

 

Encore aujourd'hui, beaucoup d'idées reçues circulent sur les TMS, et leur prévention.Après le premier clip visant à combattre l’idée reçue relative à la prévention des TMS « Pour prévenir les TMS, il suffit de montrer les bons gestes et les bonnes postures », un second volet est proposé : « Avec l’âge, c’est normal d’avoir des TMS ! »L'objectif est de montrer qu’il est possible de prévenir les TMS tout au long des carrières professionnelles, en mettant en place diverses actions de prévention, et ainsi permettre de partir en retraite avec une santé préservée.En effet, vieillir au travail ne signifie pas forcément avoir des TMS.
