Coping with stress and with back pain

For the third consecutive year, CERN will be celebrating the World Day for Health and Safety at Work through events and initiatives coordinated by the Beams department Safety Unit, the Occupational Health and Safety and Environmental Protection unit (HSE), the Medical Service and the Fire Brigade.Two main themes that will be highlighted this year are work stress and musculoskeletal disorders.

On the day of the event, you will be given information and tips on how to reduce daily stress. You will also be invited to follow a “back pain” course that will bring to light all the activities you can try out in order to fight back pain and reduce its consequences. The Fire Brigade will also be present to show you how to use the “portoire” chair. Don’t know what a “portoire” chair is? Just come along and try it out! As usual, presents will be distributed and you might have a chance to win an Ohbox and some Vitam Parc gift cards if you take part in our quiz.

So stop by on Thursday 18 April between 11.30am and 2.30pm and visit our stands in all three CERN restaurants.
