Safe Work Australia has published 4 new videos showcasing the latest evidence and systems thinking to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
MSDs are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims in Australia, accounting for more than half of all claims.
The videos feature presentations from the Musculoskeletal Disorders Symposium, hosted by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland in June 2021.
