Preventing MDSs - new best practice guide to Plasterboard Handling



This new Best Practice guide looks at ways to reduce the risk of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) when planning for the delivery and movement of plasterboard.



MSDs are one of the most common work-related ill-health conditions, especially for construction workers, and are also a significant cause of sickness absence in the sector.  



This practical guide covers material-handling arising from the journey that plasterboard takes when delivered to sites that include homes, commercial, high-rise multi-occupancy, new builds and refurbishments.
