Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are soft tissue injuries that account for up to 75% of recordable injuries in the workplace. Controlling and reducing these injuries is a priority for most occupational safety professionals and engineers. Their control has also become a business opportunity for many “experts” offering solutions through a wide range of approaches including behavioral safety, body mechanics, stretching, job matching, etc. We are regularly asked about what works and what doesn’t.

In this e-book, we compare the five most common approaches used to manage MSDs summarizing the practice and research for each to help you decide what is best for your organization.

This e-book discusses common approaches used to manage MSDs at work including:

  • Injury management
  • Job matching
  • Stretching
  • Behavior-based programs
  • Ergonomics
