There are two activities in this unit. In Activity 1: Common musculoskeletal injuries, students investigate the common musculoskeletal injuries and how to prevent them. Activity 2: Using technology to improve safety looks at how technology is used to improve safety in workplaces and students have the opportunity to develop a device that will make completing a task safer.
