One of the more difficult injury types for safety professionals and industry leaders to anticipate and prevent in the workplace is musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). These types of injuries affect muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments and can be generally viewed as sprains and strains. Since all individuals have varying degrees of physical fitness, hazards that cause MSDs are difficult to consistently identify and mitigate. Moreover, these types of disorders can expose employees to increased risk of aggravating pre-existing injuries. One of the best ways to avoid and prevent MSDs in the workplace is to implement ergonomics programs through processes and standardized procedures.
