Theuniversité Savoie Mont Blanc organizes a day of prevention around Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) on Thursday, October 20, 2022 from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm on the campus of Annecy (in the morning in the premises of Polytech and the afternoon in those of the IUT).

This event, which is part of the university's prevention action program, is intended for all Annecy staff. The purpose of this day is to inform about what an MSD is, why the office set-up can encourage the occurrence of MSDs and what techniques can reduce the effects of MSDs.
The prevention department and the occupational medicine department will accompany the staff to :

  • identify MSD hazards related to their workstation set-up and help them find solutions to eliminate or reduce them;
  • inform about the means deployed at the university to adapt the workstation in an ergonomic way.

On the agenda

During this half-day, different actions are proposed:

  • Conference (30 min): Introduces the USMB prevention day, by presenting the main principles of ergonomics at the workstation. This session will be led by the occupational medicine department, the prevention department and the MGEN. The 9:00 am lecture is offered remotely via Teams (link sent by email) and recorded.
  • MSD Prevention" workshop revisited by WHERGO (duration 1 hour): Through a scientific, friendly and fun approach, this workshop allows to materialize and understand the appearance of tensions and pains linked to certain postures at work, with the help of sensors, and gives the keys and tips to prevent or reduce them.
  • Sitting massage session (duration 20 min): In a calm atmosphere, a professional offers you a relaxing sitting session to release tensions caused by repeated bad postures, or by stress and fatigue. (Attention, very limited places)
  • Self-massage workshop (duration 45 min): In a calm atmosphere, a professional offers you a relaxation session, combining self-massage techniques and breathing exercises, with the aim of adopting better gestures and postures at work and preventing or reducing the onset of tension and pain linked to MSDs.

Given the limited number of places and in order to organize the event as well as possible, it is strongly advised to register:
