Join CRE-MSD in kicking off Global Ergonomics Month with the launch of the new MSD Prevention Guideline for Ontario. This newly revised Guideline provides updated content and a host of tools and resources targeted to meet the needs of organizations of all types and sizes. The conference will unveil the new MSD Guideline website, providing an interactive opportunity to learn about the three streams of the Guideline that have been developed:

* Quick Start Guideline – an introductory guideline for micro and very small businesses to increase their awareness and capabilities to prevent MSD

* Basic Guideline – for medium to large businesses to improve their problem solving approach to prevent MSD

* Comprehensive Guideline – for large businesses to implement an organizational wide MSD prevention program

Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops and mobile devices to benefit from interaction with the new website, however this is not a requirement, as the MSD Guideline website will be projected.

This event will be of interest to individuals in all sectors, including employers, workers and workers’ representatives, supervisors, human resources professionals, health and safety professionals, ergonomists, government, and researchers.

CRE-MSD is pleased to offer this as a FREE event but space is limited, so register early to save your seat! The registration deadline is September 21, 2018.
