ILO CIS publishes bibliography containing references on work-related MSDs

The International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre (CIS)
within the International Labour Organization (ILO) has prepared a bibliography
containing references to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the workplace.
This is a support of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work 2007
campaign 'Lighten the Load'. The campaign aims to promote an integrated
management approach to the problem, embracing the prevention of MSDs and the
retention, rehabilitation and reintegration of workers who already suffer from
them.

The prepared references contain full bibliographic descriptions, including
abstracts and links giving access to the documents on the Internet when
available. They are extracted from the CISDOC bibliographic database, a
practical tool for seeking information of international interest on
occupational safety and health.
