The Intersection of DEI and MSDs

Ensuring Equitable Outcomes

Musculoskeletal disorders, or MSDs, are the leading cause of worker disability, involuntary retirement and limitations to gainful employment. This report explores why diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) should be a foundational element of MSD prevention, describes how organizational characteristics can perpetuate disproportionate risk between workers and provides equitable solutions organizations can implement to lessen disproportionality in risk. 

This report is intended to be a starting point for organizations to use to work towards building a safer workplace for all employees and looks at:

  • Understanding work systems
  • Workplace and equipment design
  • Fostering inclusive organizational practices
  • Implementing equitable MSD solutions

An equitable workplace recognizes and celebrates the differences in its workforce and prioritizes the inclusion of all when implementing ergonomic programs and MSD prevention solutions.
