www.pkmo.si Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) and psychosocial risks (PR) at the workplace are the main cause of occupational disability, absence from work, and early retirement. MSD are partly the result of the degenerative processes that occur during aging, but also duo to inappropriate workplace settings, poor lifestyle, the obesity epidemic, low physical activity and sedentary behaviour among the working-age population. European guidelines recommends prevention as the most important element for managing and eliminating work-related MSD and PR. With an aim to reduce the incidence of MSD and PR in Slovenia the project “Promotion of activities to prevent musculoskeletal disorders and psychosocial risk at the workplace” (PKMO) was established. PKMO project runs jointly by the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) and the University of Primorska, Faculty of Health Sciences. PKMO implements a holistic approach to prevent and manage the incidence of work-related MSD and psychosocial risk using a range of systematic activities: workplace ergonomics, physical activity and psychological interventions, all included in a friendly e-tool (www.pkmo.si).
