Opis

Cleaning activities can be physically demanding and should be done without exposing workers to the risks of work-related musculoskeletal diseases (MSD). However, cleaners are at risk of developing MSDs as a result of their work. There are various solutions that can be used in order to modify tasks or the environment to prevent MSDs in cleaners. This brochure draws attention to the work situation of cleaning staff and gives tips for improving the work situation and ergonomic stress.
