Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) continue to be one of the most common causes of lost-time injuries in Ontario, regardless of whether you do heavy physical work, interact with customers at the office, or manage your own business. These injuries do not discriminate by occupation, age, or gender.
Prevention strategies involve everyone in your company learning more about ergonomics and how these concepts can be applied to their everyday activities.
The Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA) can help you recognize, assess, and control MSD hazards, as well as help you to evaluate the effectiveness of ergonomic solutions.
