Over time, routine movements done on the job can lead to injuries called musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Symptoms include a stiff neck, shoulder pain, and sore back. This health and safety training video gives an overview of how the body works, what causes MSDs, and how to reduce or avoid the likelihood of developing them.

This video explains the five MSD risk factors: awkward position, repetition, force, contact stress, and vibration. Viewers learn how extended reaches, kneeling or squatting, and working with the neck, back, or wrists bent for a long time are awkward positions that can increase chances of MSDs. The other risk factors are also illustrated. The course suggests ways to reduce the risk of developing MSDs and introduces the field of ergonomics which makes the workplace more user-friendly by designing tools, machines, and tasks to accommodate workers.

Use this online training to learn how to recognize signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders, as well as how to reduce and prevent MSDs.
