UK HSE: ''Despite a general downward trend, estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show: The total number of cases of work-related musculoskeletal disorders in 2019/20 was 480,000, a prevalence rate of 1,420 per 100,000 workers.''
''These comprised 212,000 cases where the upper limbs or neck was affected, 176,000 where the back was affected and 93.000 where the lower limbs were affected.''

UK HSE: ''Employers must protect workers from the risks of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) being caused or made worse by work. MSDs include injuries and conditions that can affect the back, joints and limbs.''

''You can do things to prevent or minimise the risk of your workers (and others who may be affected by what they do) developing MSDs You cannot prevent all MSDs, so early reporting of symptoms, proper treatment and suitable rehabilitation are essential''

''The parts of the body most likely to be affected by MSDs are: the lower back, shoulders, forearms, wrists and hands, as well as the neck, the hips, legs, knees, ankles and feet.
Workers can have different kinds of MSDs at the same time.''
