Musculoskeletal diseases, A poorly understood "pandemic"
This publication for Slovenian workers in 2007 is a part of two related campaigns to prevent musculoskeletal disorders in the European trade unions and the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work in Bilbao. In this publication, the European trade unions include the true causes of musculoskeletal disorders, in addition to mechanical stress, and the modern organization of work. The resulting intensification of work, even in countries with developed ergonomics, causes a sharp increase in musculoskeletal diseases of workers. The publication provides some practical tips on how to prevents MSDs.
