Over one third of work related injuries are caused by musculoskeletal disorders, this can be massively reduced when the correct Manual Handling Training has been provided by the employer. The incorrect manual handling has become the biggest cause of injuries at work and is currently costing society £5.7 Billion in hospital treatment, time off work and compensation claims.
To try and combat manual handling problems, the Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced. The Regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers. They give a general requirement that employees must be trained to manually handle correctly including the use of any equipment their employer provides to handle loads safely.
Ensuring your staff are adequately trained in Manual Handling is extremely important and can save employers and organisation a lot of time and money. The correct Manual Handling procedures are required in all sectors and industries; farming, factories, offices, warehousing and many more. Staff, workers, management and visitors should be made aware of the hazards involved in the incorrect moving or lifting of materials within that specific environment.
