Managing risks and looking after people’s physical health in the workplace
Safe management of inherently risky activity
Manual handling activities pose serious injury risks, with the potential for long-term impacts on people’s wellbeing.
Manual handling is not just moving heavy stuff around a construction site – it also refers to any physical activity that involves the use of force, from typing and filing to lifting and pushing.
Workers need to know how to do it safely, and businesses have an obligation to ensure they do.
This comprehensive course provides employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify and manage manual handling risks. Employees will learn about how manual handling activities can contribute to musculoskeletal injuries, which can develop immediately after a physically traumatic event, or over time through repetitive and continuous movements.
The course takes learners through a detailed outline of their workplace health and safety obligations. Learners will then identify the injury risks specific to different areas of the body, including high-risk systems such as the limbs and spine. The work safe strategies outlined in the course will ensure that learners are able to make the workplace a safe and injury-free place.
