Manual Handling Consultancy
Safe manual handling continues to be a major challenge in all workplaces. Hazardous manual handling tasks present a risk of injury for employees. Back injury is the most common injury and often results in worker absenteeism. An integrated programme for safe manual handling in the workplace will reduce the risk of back injury in the workplace and the associated costs for employer and employee. The elements of such a programme are outlined by the Health and Safety Authority.
OPS consultants can assist organisations to implement each of these elements and reduce the risk of injury from manual handling tasks to the lowest level possible. This will ensure a fit and healthy workforce and lower workplace absenteeism.
