This discussion paper looks at the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the construction sector in the EU and in Italy in particular and at the tasks that put workers at risk, such as manual lifting and awkward postures.
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.

This synthesis report is part of a much larger project intended to support policy-makers at EU and national levels by providing an accurate picture of the prevalence and costs of MSDs across Europe, pulling together existing data from a number of relevant and reliable official statistical sources...
The pandemic (COVID - 19) has forced many enterprises to ask their workers to work from home. Under these circumstances, teleworkers can be exposed to health and safety risks that need to be addressed.
Farming involves a lot of repetitive work. Manual handling and lifting in particular can cause strain and awkward positions. Outdoor work and specificities of terrain make the design of agricultural machinery challenging. This discussion paper looks at the use of mechanisation to reduce the risk of...
This websection helps employers in assessing the risks of using video display terminals (VDU´s). It contains sections dedicated to the safe use of the VDU´s, laws and regulations, associations between VDU´s and health and types of VDU´s workstations.
The document describes the posture at the VDU, the characteristics of the workstation, the arrangement of the components of the VDUl and provides some tips about the furniture and safety measures.
This brochure is aimed at workers and their safety representatives with the aim of raising awareness and involving everyone in the prevention of MSDs, both through proper individual behaviour, respectful of their own health and that of others, and to ask the employer for appropriate instructions and...
