MSD Banner

The health and safety of workers is at the heart of everything that HSE does. Tackling work related ill-health like MSDs, which impact on so many people's lives both in and outside of work, is therefore an obvious priority. MSDs are the most commonly reported cause of occupational ill health in GB, affecting many workplaces, arising from different work activities and resulting in a variety of ill-health outcomes. HSE's sights are firmly set on achieving significant improvements in preventing and controlling exposure to MSDs. Everyone has the right to go home healthy from work and we want to enable employers to do the right thing to protect the health of their workers today and for the future. In turn, this will mean a healthier more productive business.

This summit will explain what HSE is doing to achieve this, what you can do about it and what current scientific thinking is starting to shape new and re-energised approaches to help us. Tackling MSDs needs everyone to #WorkRight and share an ambition for workers to go home healthy.
