There is clear evidence that good musculoskeletal health underpins a person’s ability to live and work well . It is also fundamental to healthy ageing and independence beyond working years.
Yet, despite workplace legislation and initiatives aimed at preventing Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), they remain the most common work-related problem in the EU . Backache and muscular pains in the upper limbs are the most common reported problems, with around three in every five workers affected.
