Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) Free Awareness E-course

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) has a free
20-minute online course ideal for all workers, including managers, supervisors
and health and safety committee members, and anyone wanting to learn more about
musculoskeletal disorders.

Topics include:

  • What are work-related MSDs

  • Prevention tips
