You must manage the risk of MSDs in your workplace. If these risks exist, you must consider both the requirements for a general risk assessment and specific assessments of other risks, for example, from:
- manual handling
- repetitive work and awkward postures
- the health risks of working with display screen equipment such as PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones
- exposure to vibration, for example from driving mobile machinery over rough ground or using powered, hand-held tools
Workers can have different kinds of MSDs at the same time.
