Strumenti pratici e orientamenti sui disturbi muscoloscheletrici
Per consentire un’agevole valutazione e gestione dei rischi di DMS nei luoghi di lavoro, la nostra banca dati di facile utilizzo contiene vari strumenti pratici e materiali orientativi sviluppati a livello dell’UE e nazionale.
Le risorse includono studi campione e materiali visivi e riguardano svariati settori, tipi di pericolo e misure di prevenzione. Alcune sono rivolte in modo specifico a determinati soggetti interessati, ad esempio datori di lavoro, lavoratori o dirigenti, mentre altre alla gestione dei DMS tra gruppi specifici di lavoratori. Le risorse possono essere filtrate per una di queste categorie o altre ancora, così non avrai problemi a trovare esattamente ciò che cerchi.
