There are many websites with straightforward fixes for MSD hazards and many groups and organizations that you can turn to for information and help. There are several partners within Ontario Health and Safety Systems that provide general and sector specific support. Here is the list of these partners:
The Association of Canadian Ergonomists (ACE) is a bilingual, professional association of individuals and organizations with a common interest in advancing ergonomics and human factors knowledge and practice.
There are other organizations that provide information regarding MSD prevention. These include but not limited to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety and the Washington State Department of Labour in the USA that has collected a wide range of fixes for MSD hazards that is searchable by sector and hazard.
