Manual Handling Risk Management

Strain injuries from work-related activity are 40% of most organisation’s injuries; and often include the highest cost claims. Simply providing “Manual Handling Training” has been proven to be ineffective in reducing injury severity and injury frequency – let’s face it, we all know people don’t lift safely the day after almost any manual handling training.

If you are committed to preventing strain injuries in your workplace you’ll need to manage the handling risks by getting smarter – designing the work so it’s ergonomically sound; ensuring your people are fit for the actual work demands; reducing those demands with risk-reduction equipment, enhanced systems and practical people controls.

With a team of ergonomic and manual tasks risk management consultants, all of whom are allied health professionals (Physiotherapist; Exercise Physiologists, Ergonomic Consultant) IPM is a highly professional, practical and effective choice for your manual tasks problem-solving. Whether your organisation is in manufacturing; logistics; council or utility work; health; aged care; hospitality, transport, energy or otherwise, we have extensive experience in reducing musculoskeletal injury risks.

Since IPM were here, we have had the most alignment ever (not perfect just on the way), the most change has occurred, safety has improved at little to no cost, people are accountable, and when they are not I have a method to use to make them and they have had the coaching to know they could have done better so it’s not an argument but more a conversation.

In the month since IPM was onsite, we implemented around $30k p.a. Savings alongside all the other improvements and happier team.

Thank you for the excellent work with our training sessions and the SafetyCircle Program generally. They are the best-run sessions I’ve attended in my 19 years here.  It’s been a whole new way of thinking – and living!  Such a simple message – but so pervasive.  Your gift of engaging participants is commendable.

Well done – you have made it so easy for us all to enthusiastically embrace the program.”
