Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are a common designation for pain, stiffness or tenderness in the joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles or bones. Employees in the healthcare sector in general and in particular elderly care in municipalities are at risk of developing MSDs due to heavy manual work including person lifting and moving. This paper presents a strategic MSD prevention tool developed in collaboration with Danish Municipalities. The tool consists of two volumes: 1) a method linking strategy to practice and 2) a toolbox with seven concrete tools for reducing MSD in practice.
