PREMUS 2016 will bring together 400-plus scientists, researchers, occupational health and safety professionals, ergonomists, industrial engineers and policy-makers from around the world. These delegates have a shared interest in understanding the causes and prevalence of work-related MSDs, as well as the evidence-based interventions that will prevent them. PREMUS is the primary conference of the Musculoskeletal Disorders Scientific Community of the International Commission of Occupational Health (ICOH), and has been taking place every three years since 1992.
