Musculoskeletal Injuries (MSI) are disorders of the muscles, tendons, nerves and related soft tissues, and include sprains, strains and inflammations that may be caused or aggravated by work.
68% of all lost time injuries in Newfoundland and Labrador over the last 5 years are MSIs. (Source: WorkplaceNL)
NLCSA is part of a MSIP Week planning group and we encourage you to get involved by:
- Attending WorkplaceNL’s free manual materials handling workshop “How would you handle it?” on September 27th;
- Displaying the “How would you handle it? – Building Materials” poster and the “How would you handle it? – Tools and Equipment” poster;
- Hosting a MSIP Week event at your workplace; and/or
- Completing a short survey.
