Release Date:  Sep 30, 2015

October is Global Ergonomics Month

Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs), or workplace pains and strains, affect the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. They cause pain and suffering ranging from discomfort to severe disability and can affect every aspect of a worker's life.

MSDs are also costly. They are the number one reason for lost-time claims reported to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), resulting in huge direct and indirect costs for Ontario employers.

Use good ergonomics to work smarter, not harder to help prevent MSDs. We can help!
