Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the biggest cause of occupational ill health in the UK. HSE’s excellent new Assessment of Repetitive Tasks (ART) tool can be used to highlight risk factors, allowing practical steps to be taken to reduce the likelihood of injury.
IOSH Food and Drink Group, assisted by experts from HSL and HSE, are running three half-day workshops on reducing upper limb disorders (ULDs) and the use of the ART tool. These will be held on 20, 21 and 22 July at Leeds, Leicester and Windsor respectively. Three further workshops may take place later in the year.
