Prevention of musculoskeletal disorders and psychosocial risks in the workplace 
A new European discussion paper reviews various aspects of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and prevention of psychosocial risks. The paper was developed together with the Italian National Institute for Insurance against Accidents at Work (INAIL).
