PD Event : Why we need to change risk management approaches for musculoskeletal disorders: The role of an ergonomist!


6:30 pm - 7:15 pm


Bookings closed

Event Type

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the largest Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) problem in many countries, including Australia where their annual total costs are calculated to be over $24 billion. There is now robust evidence from a large body of peer-reviewed research, including both epidemiological and intervention studies, that a diverse range of work-related psychosocial hazards affect MSD risk but this is not being translated into contemporary risk management approaches.

This presentation will provide an overview of the current research on MSD aetiology and insights from a range of projects based in Australian workplaces which have underpinned the development of A Participative Hazard identification and Risk Management (APHIRM) toolkit to address these important gaps.

The role of the ergonomist in MSD risk management will be explored and opportunities for discussion will be provided.
