Welcome to the Centre of Research Expertise for the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders
The Centre of Research Expertise for the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders (CRE-MSD) conducts research to improve the understanding of and prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The single largest contributor to lost time claims and costs in Ontario (and worldwide) is MSDs. CRE-MSD is recognized for its focus on the primary prevention of MSDs: saving workers from injury in the first place.
The Centre receives funding through a grant provided by the Ontario Ministry of Labour and also benefits from the support of the University of Waterloo.
