Promote best practice to avoid injury and make staff aware of resources available through our Physiotherapy and MSK initiative.
Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders include back pain, neck or arm strains and diseases of the joints. All parts of the workforce can be affected by MSK and it accounts for a high proportion of sickness absence in the workplace. MSK can be caused by work-related injuries, such as incorrect handling, or not having equipment in the workplace personally adjusted. Raising awareness of prevention among staff and promoting early intervention through physiotherapy is key to effectively managing MSK disorders.
