Laboratory work is an essential part of scientific research and the pharmaceutical industry. Laboratory based roles can often involve high levels of static postures, repetitive movements, adverse postures, high focus tasks, fine precision movements, manual handling and working with chemicals.

In this episode, I will explore key areas of concern and provide practical advice to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal discomfort, fatigue and stress at the different common laboratory work areas.
