Preventing MSDs in Warehouses & Facilities: Harnessing Physical and Psychosocial Contributors

This webinar focuses on practical and proven organizational strategies for considerably reducing musculoskeletal disorders through a balanced strategy of controlling physical, psychosocial and cultural contributors. Emphasis is on companies upgrading toward higher-level performance in safety – as well as overall. 
Just look at the statistics on MSDs: they haven’t improved for many years in warehouses, facilities and numerous other operations, despite concerted attempts to prevent them. It’s especially an issue now with organizations often struggling to maintain a full workforce to keep up with business demands. To prevent these pervasive, costly injuries, companies have typically defaulted to the same approach of controlling physical contributing forces at work. But “staying the course” is not working, and the latest research repetitively confirms that addressing these factors alone is not enough to make a sizable and sustaining impact on MSDs.
