Beschrijving

The number of people working with musculoskeletal injuries is rising constantly due to unresolved problems stemming from a lack of prevention and rehabilitation. The Bulgarian national focal point hosts a conference to raise awareness of the problem with stakeholders.

The event focuses on issues related to the diagnosis and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries, as well as proven and effective good practices. The aim is to spread these good practices to companies, and especially industrial workers performing manual work with heavy weights susceptible to such injuries.

The health monitoring of workers in respect of Covid-19 is also discussed, along with cardiovascular risk assessment in occupational medicine. The 50 participants are also invited to take part in open discussions. The event is beneficial for representatives of SMEs and large enterprises; trade unions; employers’ organisations; and anyone involved in occupational safety and health.
