What is #OSHtober?

#OSHtober is RoSPA's annual month-long workplace safety campaign, which runs throughout October. Each year RoSPA focuses on a specific topic which highlights the devastating impacts that workplace accidents and ill health have.

This year #OSHtober will raise awareness of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) and the effects poor manual handling practice has on the workforce.
