A third of all injuries in the workplace are the result of lifting or handling heavy or awkward loads. Injuries vary from mild aches and pains, to permanent disability and compensation. This is a hazard common to every workplace, whether an office, warehouse, factory or construction site. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations place responsibilities on employers to reduce injuries from manual handling and to conduct an assessment of handling operations that cannot be avoided. This seminar workshop looks at practical ways to meet these requirements.
- Overview of the Regulations
- Safe lifting technique
- Managing handling operations
- Mechanical and other alternatives
- Assessing manual handling activities
- Training and refresher training
