HSE's Musculoskeletal disorder 'Risk-reduction through design' Award

HSE has teamed up with the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF) to sponsor an annual MSD 'risk-reduction through design' award.  We want to highlight the important contribution that design changes can make to reduce MSD risks, and want businesses to nominate design changes that have made a real impact.  We are looking for schemes that have been implemented in Great Britain during the 2017 calendar year, and have demonstrably reduced MSD risks for workers.

For further information and details of how to make a nomination please visit the Risk reduction through design web page. Please note the closing date for nominations is 31 January 2018.
