The social partners in agriculture, GEOPA-COPA and EFFAT, have agreed to engage in sectoral negotiations on MSD (as stated in their European agreement, see annex), with the aim of formulating a number of concrete proposals on the reduction of workers’ exposure to the risk of work-related musculo-skeletal disorders. In this agreement, defining and coordinating policies for the prevention of MSD are mentioned.
The goal of the project VS/2008/0530 was to implement the European social partners’ agreement by developing prevention policies and good practices to reduce MSD, and to disseminate the results through the development of a website, brochures and a final event.
In 2012, a second project was obtained after the call for proposal VP/2011/002.
