Manual Handling Training In The Workplace

Almost every worker, be it an office worker or not will perform manual handling on a daily basis in the workplace.  Outside of work, all of us perform manual handling each and every day.  The definition of manual handling is to push, pull, lift, carry, throw or exert a force against an object.   Manual handling is probably one of the biggest causes of musculoskeletal complaints in the workplace and injuries commonly occur in the lower back, neck and upper limb.  Risk factors for manual handling injuries include force, awkward postures, duration, repetition and duration.

If your workplace has a history of injuries occurring as a result of manual handling or you would like to raise your workers understanding of what and why manual handling injuries occur and how to prevent these, then be sure to touch base with us at Corporate Work Health Australia.
