Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.
We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties.
The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive for many years, as evidenced in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practice. The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention.
The Manual Handling training we deliver provides an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling – not only meeting Health and Safety Executive recommendations, but also promoting good and safe practices in any situation.
