Ontario preventing musculoskeletal disorders in miners
from Government of Ontario
Ontario will target hazards that can lead to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in mines and mining plants during Global Ergonomics Month in October. Until Nov. 30, 2017, Ministry of Labour inspectors will focus on MSD hazards, slips, trips, and falls during visits to mining workplaces as part of an enforcement blitz. In particular, inspectors will focus on hazards that can increase the risk of MSDs during manual material handling tasks and when using equipment that can cause hand-arm vibration.
