REQUIREMENTS FOR MORE EFFECTIVE PREVENTION OF WORK-RELATED MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS BMC MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS 2015
MSDs are one of our largest OHS problems, but workplace risk management procedures do not reflect current evidence concerning their work-related causes. Inadequate attention is given to assessing and controlling risk from psychosocial hazards, and the conventional risk management paradigm focuses too narrowly on risk from individual hazards rather than promoting the more holistic approach needed to manage the combined effects of all relevant hazards. Achievement of such changes requires new MSD risk management tools and better integration of the roles of OHS personnel with those of line managers.
