MSD Problems? The WSIB of Ontario Comes to the Rescue!

Got problems with muscloskeletal injuries (MSD's) in workplace but you don't have a clue how to begin tackling the problem? While it is advisable to call on an ergonomics professional to assist you at some point, a good reference to help quantify the main problems can be found on www.preventionpractices.com , a website developed by the WSIB in Ontario, Canada.

The PDF's introduce you to what MSD's are, what causes them, and how to build a program to reduce and/or eliminate them from your workplace.

Another example of Ontario leading Canada (and perhaps North America) in ergonomics awareness!
