Fit for Work

Fit for Work

The Fit for Work Europe Coalition, a unique, multi-stakeholder group, is dedicated to advancing policies and clinical practices that alleviate suffering and enhance the lives of those living with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Nearly half of all workplace absences and 60 percent of permanent work incapacities in the European Union are caused by MSDs, and more than a quarter of the EU’s working population reports work-related back pain.

Fit for Work, supported by an ongoing grant from Abbott and a supporting grant from GE Healthcare, brings together patients, physicians, policymakers and others who believe in the importance of early detection, prevention and management of MSDs in the workplace. The organization’s goal is to raise awareness through evidence-based research and recommendations for addressing the burden of MSDs throughout Europe.
