Manual handling includes any activity where employees grasp, manipulate, carry, move, lift, lower, push, pull, hold or restrain a load, maintain fixed postures or practice repetitive tasks.
As an employer, it is your responsibility to provide a safe working environment, safety training, safe conditions and safe equipment. You should also providr training in safety procedures for any manual tasks you expect your staff to do.
60 minutes in length, Healthworks® Manual Handling seminar and webinar covers exactly that, and more:
- what is manual handling
- causes of pain and disability
- mechanical aids
- assessing the situation
- exercise and tips to support your body
Healthworks® fully qualified Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists will then provide practical advice on how to improve health behaviors, and participants will leave with a handout designed to help them on their way.
The Seminar is presented onsite, while the Webinar is available online.
