Objectives of the webinar

The UK has the highest rates of new claims for disability of any of the Organisation of Economic and Commercial Development (OECD) countries with the two most common causes of disability being Musculoskeletal disorders and Mental Health conditions.

The prevalence of MSK in the workforce is likely to increase to 7 million by 2030, as a consequence of our ageing workforce, as older workers are at greater risk of MSK problems.

The topics to be covered in the webinar will be

  • To highlight key challenges and impact of not managing musculoskeletal health of employees, businesses and the economy.

  • To share best practice evidence on the support employers could offer employees to help the workforce remain in work.

  • Raise awareness of MSK health resources and tools available.
