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.
