A symposium discussing latest research and best practice approaches to musculoskeletal disorders will be held at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre from 3 to 4 March 2015.
There will be discussions on the characteristics of high performing workplaces, critical role leadership plays in creating a good safety culture, and the business benefits of managing MSDs.
Sessions on the link between MSDs and psychosocial risk factors, the link between MSDs and chronic disease risk factors (including sedentary work), and how to engage workers on MSD risk factors will be conducted.
Professor Dennis Else, Executive Director, Safety, Sustainability and Health, Brookfield Multiplex Australasia and Director, the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living will deliver a keynote presentation on the OHS characteristics of high performing workplaces.
The symposium will also present a myth busting panel session and a range of case studies presented by Queensland businesses.
