The Ontario Ministry of Labour has announced that in its February “blitz”, MOL inspectors will look for hazards in material handling – in particular, hazards that can lead to musculoskeletal disorders.

On its website, the MOL states:

“Every day we use our muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints to lift, carry, sit, stand, walk, move and work in a variety of ways. However, sometimes these tasks or the way we do them can put too much demand on our bodies, causing pain and discomfort. In addition, it may lead to a more serious injury called a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). Working shouldn’t hurt!”

The MOL website contains resources such as information on safe lifting: http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs/topics/pains.php.
