PREMUS is an international scientific conference that serves as a forum for work-related musculoskeletal health research with an emphasis on prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The participants include international experts in the field, such as scientists, practitioners in occupational health and safety, ergonomists, economists, industrial engineers, and policy makers. The goal of PREMUS is to present and discuss the latest research. All keynote speakers are by invitation only and are recognized for their leadership and their international expertise. All presentations go through a peer review process ensuring high quality of research. As a result, PREMUS is the premier conference for work-MSDs.
Over the past 20 years, PREMUS has been organized every three years. PREMUS 2007 is the first time the conference will be held in the United States.
