Our innovative Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) Score Form works like the MAC Tool.


The Score Form has 6 pages with page 1 for writing the employee’s name; the date of their Manual Handling Training and states ‘How to complete the MSD Score’. Basically you give the MSD Score Form to the employee the day before they receive Manual Handling Training. For the following regions of their body, they score between 0-10 for the levels of pain they are receiving:

  • Neck

  • Upper Back

  • Mid Back

  • Lower Back

  • Left/ Right Shoulder, Arm, Wrist

  • Left/ Right Hip, Knee, Ankle


You then total their score. 

The 6 pages of the MSD Score Form are then kept in their personal file. On the next Manual Handling Training date the same procedure is repeated; and so on, with future Training dates.


The MSD Score Form can also be issued anytime, to assess results from any Manual Handling Risk Reduction intervention/ investment.


It can be part of an 'Upstream*' Prevention Management of  Manual Handling Lost Time Accidents and Injury at Work Claims.


*In the Book Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen, New York Times bestselling Author Dan Heath (who also co-wrote Made to Stick) explores how to prevent problems before they happen, drawing on insights from hundreds of interviews with unconventional problem solvers. So often in life, we get stuck in a cycle of response. We put out fires. We deal with emergencies. We stay downstream, handling one problem after another, but we never make our way upstream to fix the systems that caused the problems. Cops chase robbers, doctors treat patients with chronic illnesses, and call-center reps address customer complaints. But many crimes, chronic illnesses, and customer complaints are preventable. So why do our efforts skew so heavily toward reaction rather than prevention?
