Preventing Musculoskeletal Injuries

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are a potential risk for all sectors and
occupations. They can cause discomfort, fatigue, pain, injury, and illness to
workers. In fact, work-related musculoskeletal injuries are a frequent type of
lost-time injury and are a large source of lost-time worker compensation costs.

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) takes a quick
look at work-related musculoskeletal injuries and how to prevent them - in time
for RSI Awareness Day (Feb 28th).

The short podcast runs for 2:59 minutes.
