Musculoskeletal Health Toolkit for Employers
Employers have a legal duty to provide safe workplaces that do not damage employees health, and a key part of this is considering risk around musculoskeletal health. This toolkit developed in partnership with ARMA, provides practical advice for employers regarding employee musculoskeletal health and reducing workplace absence. Each workplace has its own circumstances that can impact on our musculoskeletal health positively and negatively. This musculoskeletal health toolkit can help you understand the challenges specific to your workplace, reduce the risks of problems, help to keep those with existing problems in work and aid recovery where possible
The Musculoskeletal (MSK) Health Toolkit for Employers explains
- Why MSK health is important to you and for your business
- What can be done to prevent MSK problems and reduce work loss
- How you can achieve this, whether you are a small, medium or large employer
Good musculoskeletal (MSK) health is integral to a full working life. It supports us with functional mobility and dexterity, balance and co-ordination, and contributes to muscular strength and endurance; essential to nearly all forms of work. It also enables us to stay physically and mentally fit and reduce the occurrence of other health problems. Action should be taken at all ages to invest in enhancing education, awareness and opportunities to engage in understanding good MSK health and how to reduce the risks of developing an MSK problem.
