Lighten the Load: EU-OSHA launches Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2020-2022


Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the focus of EU-OSHA’s latest Healthy Workplaces Campaign, and with good reason. These debilitating conditions, which include backache and neck pain, are the most common ailments among workers in Europe.

The campaign was launched at a press conference with the European Commissioner Nicolas Schmit, the German Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, Hubertus Heil and EU-OSHA’s Executive Director, Christa Sedlatschek.

MSDs are preventable and manageable. By working together, EU-OSHA and its partners aim to show this by bringing information, tips and tools to workplaces across Europe, encouraging people in every sector to make tackling MSDs a priority.
