Event description

Description

We invite you to have your say on work-related musculoskeletal disorders in WA.

Musculoskeletal disorders contribute to approximately 52% of workers’ compensation claims in Western Australia. To tackle the high counts, suffering and burden associated with this condition, WorkSafe WA, WorkCover WA and Arthritis and Osteoporosis Western Australia are working in collaboration to develop a Western Australian Framework for the Prevention and Management of Work related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs). The intention for this framework is to serve as a state-wide roadmap for stakeholders. The framework will be formulated using evidence based research and consultation, contribution and discussion with key stakeholders in Western Australia (WA).

We believe that government agencies, special interest groups, medical professionals, allied health professionals, ergonomists, rehabilitation service providers, OSH professionals, the insurance industry, researchers, policy makers, industry and business leaders and employee group leaders are important stakeholders that can influence the prevention and management of WMSDs in WA.

We believe that you are an important stakeholder in relation to this initiative and we would like to invite you to a focus session on this subject. At these focus sessions stakeholders will be invited to express their personal and collective views about the current state, underlying factors, key stakeholders, facilitators and barriers to addressing this subject matter. Additionally, information about what we know and understand about WMSDs and the current state of the issue in Western Australia will be shared at these sessions.
