Manual handling training
Does your workplace have tasks which require workers to lift, carry, push, pull, hold or move objects or people? Do these tasks require repetitive or sustained forces and movements or awkward postures?
If the answer is ‘yes’, then these factors may lead to workers experiencing body stress and increased risk of injury. Ideally, in any workplace, risky tasks should be eliminated or substituted with technology or process solutions, however, this is not possible for many tasks.
Many manual handling injuries can be prevented by planning how tasks are performed and giving workers the practical skills to perform tasks safely.
Inspire Therapy is able to plan and deliver manual handling training tailored to your workplace. Training may consist of safe manual handling techniques, understanding and dealing with manual handling hazards, following procedures for safe work, using manual handling equipment and aids.
