What’s the course about?

Musculoskeletal Disorders

We all have aches and pains from time to time and the chances are that some of these may have been caused by what’s known as a musculoskeletal disorder.

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are fairly common and affect the body’s joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. They affect three main areas of the body; upper limb, back and lower limb.

When people suffer from an MSD, it can lead to a reduction in an individuals’ assessment of their general health, and to a reduction in their quality of life. MSDs are not always caused by work, but they are often made worse by the work we do and they often develop over time.

Work related MSDs account for 44% of the total number of work related illnesses. That’s about 553,000 current cases, and about 169,000 new cases a year.

In this Musculoskeletal Disorders e-learning course you’ll gain the knowledge and understanding required to help reduce the likely impact arising from MSD’s in the workplace.

The e-learning course is interactive and engaging, which helps make the learning easy and interesting to follow. It’s a fun way of learning the important principles of musculoskeletal disorders.

 

Why use this course?

The e-learning raises awareness of musculoskeletal disorders and provides important information that will help reduce the likelihood of MSD’s occurring.
