Musculoskeletal (MSD) health is the working of the joints and muscles and the ability to perform comfortably the physical tasks of day to day living.
Our vision is to create workplaces where employees are healthy, safe and injury free.
In Canada, musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) account for the most lost time injuries, the highest lost-time claim costs, and the most lost time work days of any type of injury.
Worker's compensation board figures from various jurisdictions indicate that MSDs account for 25% to 60% of total annual compensation claims.
MSDs are often painful and disabling.
They can interfere with all kinds of tasks at work, at home, and in recreation.
Even in early stages, recovery from MSDs often requires months or even years of treatment.
In severe cases, there may be a permanent disability.
