Risk-reduction through design award
The 'Risk-reduction through design' award is sponsored by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF).
We want to inspire businesses to consider how ergonomics-based design changes can reduce the risks of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and nominate design changes that have made a real impact.
HSE's message continues to be that risks from MSDs must be controlled and that all employers should eliminate or reduce these risks at source where possible.
