Psychosocial risks and work-related musculoskeletal disorders: exploring the links and prevention strategies

A report explores the connections between psychosocial factors and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the workplace using data from the latest European Working Conditions Survey and European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks. It finds that some psychosocial factors — such as working time, job security and support from management — have more of an impact on MSDs than factors related to sociodemographics, country or economic sector.
