New FREMAP Handbook on Preventing work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders in upper limbs

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the most common work-related health problem in the European Union and all other industrialised countries and one of the main causes of temporary incapacity.

MADRID (31/01/2019)

Although MSDs can be suffered by any body part, the most common areas are the back, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, and hands.

This manual outlines the main risk factors and injuries to the upper limbs, as well as their respective preventive measures, with special emphasis on the design and redesign of workplaces.

From FREMAP's Prevention Department, we sincerely hope that this guidebook will spark your interest and help prevent musculoskeletal disorders.
