30 September 2009

This groundbreaking study conducted across 25 European countries and beyond finds that 100 million Europeans suffer from musculoskeletal disorders( MSDs), accounting for 49% of workplace absence and 60% of permanent work incapacity in the EU. It looks at the causes, and crucially, steps that can be taken to reduce the serious, negative socio-economic impact of MSDs. Click here to find out more about Fit for Work Europe.
