What is manual handling?
Manual handling involves the use of the human body to lift, lower, fill, empty, or carry loads. Most manufacturing or distribution systems require some manual handling tasks.
How can I reduce the chance of manual handling injuries from occurring?
Manual handling is a common cause of injury in the workplace. Consideration to lifting technique and posture can help, but research indicates that changing workplace design is the most effective way of preventing injuries. The introduction of lifting equipment is a great way to improve manual handling techniques and in turn reduce manual handling injuries.
