THE FACTS Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries or conditions affecting the movement of the human body, including both lower and upper limbs. MSDs are the most common occupational disease in the European Union. They can, in many cases, be prevented.
Over 40 million workers in Europe are affected by MSDs attributable to their work, costing some 240 billion euros per year in lost productivity. (Source: European Agency for Safety and Health at Work.)
EU member states are set to see 50% of their population diagnosed with an MSD by 2030. (Source: Fit for Work Europe Coalition, The Work Foundation)
