ICOH, IEA & IOHA renew collaboration

 

During the Triennial Congress of the International Commission on Occupational Health held in Marrakesh, Morocco, from 28th April to 3rd May, the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH) renewed its collaboration agreement with the International Ergonomics Association and the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA).

The MOU was signed by the Presidents, Prof. Seong Kyu Kang for ICOH, Dr Samantha Connell, MSPH, CIH for IOHA and Prof. Jose Orlando Gomes for the IEA. This is the third such agreement, and its renewal reinforces the willingness of these three internationally significant professional associations representing occupational physicians, hygienists, and Human Factors and Ergonomics specialists, who are active in workplace health and safety protection. We look forward to continuing the work together, particularly the plans to hold a joint Congress on informal work in Colombia in 2026.

 

Official recognition of ergonomics in Brazil

The Associação Brasileira de Ergonomia e Fatores Humanos (ABERGO), an IEA federated society, recently achieved a significant milestone where years of hard work led to the title “Ergonomist” being introduced into the list of recognised occupations in Brazil. The title applies to people with tertiary-level qualifications and specialisation in HFE in alignment with the IEA-endorsed certification system of Brazil. This is not the first time that ABERGO successfully managed to advance the HFE discipline in Brazil. In 2022, ABERGO played a significant role in getting laws passed to obligate employers to conduct “ergonomic” risk assessments and design appropriate prevention interventions. We congratulate all who have worked long and hard to achieve this great step for our profession, the health and well-being of Brazilian workers, and their performance in companies.

Certificates of Participation at IEA Webinars

The trial to give certificates to participants attending IEA webinars continues. To get the certificates it is necessary to participate online and answer a couple of relatively easy questions related to the content immediately following the live presentation. This is to check that the participation actually took place.

At the moment we are not offering certificates for viewing the presentations via YouTube afterwards but all of the IEA webinars have been recorded and are available for those who missed them live. A link is at the bottom of the NewsBriefs.

 

 

SPOTLIGHT ON IEA TECHNICAL COMMITTEES (TC)

 

In the last NewsBriefs, introduced the spotlight on IEA Technical Committees (TCs) feature, which aims to raise awareness about various HFE issues that TCs focus on while also showcasing some of the initiatives, events, and opportunities for collaboration and networking that are provided by IEA TCs. The first IEA Technical Committee to be featured is the Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) TC.

 

Importance of the MSD TC

MSDs comprise over 150 different conditions that affect muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage, spinal discs, and bones across various parts of the human body. They affect people in various age groups and have a multifactorial aetiology. While much research has been conducted over the years to help industries understand the contributory factors and to provide tools to assess and better manage MSDs, they remain one of the most prevalent conditions affecting worker health while costing organisations in terms of lost production, medical costs, and compensation.

 

The IEA MSD TC mission is to “collect, review and share methods, “best” practices and “best experiences” for risk assessment and management of WMSDs, including aspects related to job/task design and to workplace/work tools design”. The IEA MSD TC has over the years been working tirelessly to raise awareness about MSDs to bring to the fore updated information about MSDs and to dispel myths that continue to be a hurdle in the proactive management of MSDs.

 

The MSD TC has various working groups that focus on numerous aspects of MSD prevention and management. These include the following:

·      Science

·      Tools and standards

·      ISO standards

·      Health inequalities and MSDs

·      Policy issues of continuous worker monitoring

·      Technical exposure measurements

 

Overview of MSD TC Activities

Some of the activities that the IEA MSD TC is involved in include the following:

·      Growing the MSD prevention community by focusing on PhD students, and practitioners, and working on increasing the number of countries represented in the TC membership profile

·      Engaging and informing the MSD prevention community through organising and hosting meetings, events, and forums for discussing

·      Coordinating the dissemination of resources and research on assessment and management of MSDs in workplaces. Find out more about these resources here: https://iea.cc/about/ergonomics-in-practice/tools-for-assessing-and-implementing-hfe-in-the-workplace/

·      Expanding the impact of MSD prevention research and practice through advocacy and seeking opportunities to contribute to the development of MSD policies and standards

·      Participating in the IEA Congress and assisting with the scientific program (e.g. reviewing submissions) to ensure that MSD research forms part of the Congress.

 

More information about the MSD TC can be found here: https://iea.cc/member/musculoskeletal-disorders/

 

MSD TC membership

The MSD TC is not only one of the biggest IEA TCs, but also covers a topical issue that is of interest to various stakeholders within workplaces and beyond. The MSD TC constituency reflects this diversity and is comprised of a collection of practitioners, academics, and others that are interested in understanding, assessing, and managing MSDs, which are pervasive in almost all industries globally. Members of the MSD TC come from all corners of the globe and there is representation from all continents. Despite this diversity, the MSD TC has noted that there is a need to ensure greater participation and involvement of members from more countries, including those from the developing world.

 

MSD TC membership is open to all IEA federated and affiliated society members. To join the MSD TC, contact the Chair of the TC, Dr. Steven Fischer (steven.fischer@uwaterloo.ca).
