MSK AWARENESS WORKSHOPS

Our workshops are typically 2-3 hours long and can be delivered to groups in a variety of locations, such as large meeting rooms or in ready-to-work areas. All workshops will be tailored to the needs of your organisation.

 

Musculoskeletal Disorders in the Workplace

Our highly interactive sessions are directed at managers aiming to increase understanding of the impact of MSDs in the workplace in relation to productivity, absenteeism and presenteeism. You will learn how to manage MSDs and will be given information on injury prevention strategies and the benefits of Occupational Health provision.

 

Work-related upper limb disorders

Typical examples include repetitive strain trauma, hand/wrist tendon syndromes or carpal tunnel syndrome which can occur in work settings where there are repetitive or forceful movements or extensive flexion of the hand and wrist. Our workshop focuses on risks and how to reduce risks, and provides advice and exercises along with written course material.

 

Spinal Awareness

Back pain can be caused by many work situations and frequently fluctuates, leading to episodic exacerbations. Our anatomy-based presentation discusses what can go wrong with the spine and how to self-manage back pain in the workplace. Evidence-based interventions will also be discussed and exercises alongside lifestyle advice will be offered which have been demonstrated to reduce the impact of back pain.
