New report on work-related musculoskeletal disorders

Safe Work Australia's Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders in Australia (WMSDs) report provides a comprehensive and authoritative resource on WMSDs.

WMSDs are the most common type of work-related injury in Australia, accounting for 55 per cent of all serious workers' compensation claims in 2015-16.

The report outlines current knowledge of WMSD hazards and risk factors, including psychosocial hazards , statistics on incidence and impact, and a review of workplace interventions in Australia and internationally.
