Last year, 40,000 construction workers reported suffering with work-related MSDs.

This episode of the podcast series discusses what you can do to promote change and protect your workforce from the risks of MSDs.

It features a conversation with Matt Birtles, Principal Ergonomics and Human Factors Consultant at HSE, and Peter Crosland, National Civil Engineering Director at CECA. They cover the impact that MSDs can have on workers, employers’ legal responsibilities and the sensible control measures that can be introduced regardless of the size of the construction site.
