Deskrizzjoni

Workers in the construction industry perform physically demanding work. The physical strain is often high. This can lead to complaints to the neck, shoulder and back, and thus even to sickness absence and disability. Almost half of the absenteeism in the construction industry is caused by these complaints. On this website you can find more information about physical strain, tips to avoit it and a step-by-step approach to choose the right equipment/tools to avoid physical strain. 

 

The Working Conditions Act requires the employer to take measures to prevent or limit physical strain. But also as an employee you can ensure that you do not overload your body. As an employer and employee, look together for solutions that limit physical strain. This reduces the chance of complaints.
