Every day we use our muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints to lift, carry, sit, stand, walk, move and work in a variety of ways. However, sometimes these tasks or the way we do them can put too much demand on our bodies, causing pain and discomfort. In addition, it may lead to a more serious injury called a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). Work shouldn't hurt!
The Ministry of Labour and its health and safety partners are raising awareness of MSDs in the workplace. Learn more about prevention resources and take part in planned activities. Work shouldn’t hurt!
