An event being held by SafeWork NSW may be of particular interest to people in the construction industry. SafeWork NSW will be hosting a Musculoskeletal Disorders Symposium on 8-9 November, where attendees can get information from research and ideas about how to best handle hazardous manual tasks and how to prevent musculoskeletal injuries and disorders in the workplace.
While we are familiar with these types of injuries in the construction industry, hazardous manual tasks are actually the most common cause of injury in the workplace in general. In NSW these injuries account for 29 per cent of all workplace injuries.
The event forms part of SafeWork’s efforts to reduce these incidents by 30 per cent by 2022.
Safety managers, business owners, academics and anyone with an interest in work health and safety is encouraged to attend.
