Healthy Workplaces: Lighten the Load campaign for 2020-2022

EU-OSHA’s Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load Campaign is focused on the prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

By working together, EU-OSHA and its partners aim to show that MSDs are preventable and manageable. Information, tips, and tools will be shared throughout the campaign to workplaces across Europe, encouraging people in every sector to make tackling MSDs a priority.

Priority areas

The campaign is organised into priority areas, each focusing on a specific topic related to MSDs. You can explore the information and resources for each topic on the EU-OSHA website. IOSH will also be sharing resources for all priority areas throughout the campaign.
