Napo in lighten the load

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)
Handling loads

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the most common work-related health problem in Europe, affecting millions of workers - at some point in their life as many as 90 percent of people will suffer from back pain, upper limb disorders, and repetitive strain injuries.

'Lighten the load' supports an integrated management approach to tackling MSDs, and the need to address the 'whole load on the body', which covers all the stresses and strains, environmental factors such as cold working conditions, the pace at which the work is being carried out, and the load being moved.
The film shows Napo confronting different work situations and is suitable for all workers, including migrant and temporary workers. There are eleven scenes showing typical situations faced in the workplace.
