So, what can employers do to recognise and reduce the impact and effectively support employees and what does that look like?
Join our experts, Jan Vickery and Sarah Taylor as they explore the issues surrounding MSDs and how organisations can put processes in place to ensure a robust and healthy workforce highlighting how Occupational Health and PMI can help.
