Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) continue to be prevalent in workplaces across Ontario. Most recent statistics from the WSIB indicate that MSDs still account for nearly 40% of workplace injuries in Ontario.

“Employers have a legal responsibility to provide a safe workplace under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act. This includes improving the workplace and implementing measures to protect workers from all hazards, including those related to musculoskeletal disorders.”

In October 2018, the CRE-MSD launched the new MSD Prevention Guideline to help address MSD injuries. Regardless of the size of your workplace, this is a guideline for you and it is meant to assist you in improving and/or creating an MSD prevention program at your workplace.

Register to ensure you can join us and explore these guidelines, including their many tools and resources, and discuss strategies for systematically addressing ergonomics throughout your whole workplace (everything from policies and procedures to work practices to procurement).

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the new online, interactive MSD Prevention Guideline for Ontario
  • Use provided tools and resources to address your workplace issues
  • Identify opportunities for improvement in MSD prevention practices in your workplace
