Benefits of Manual Handling Classes
Manual handling classes can decrease costs and chance of musculoskeletal injuries.
Manual handling classes can be one of the best preventative steps workplaces can take to reduce the risks and cost of injuries. We can help to identify the risks for injuries at your workplace through a pre-class walkthrough and tailor a manual handling class to suit your needs.
Most onsite injuries at work can be attributed to poor manual handling techniques, therefore education can be the first and most important step to preventing these injuries.
We can also work with your existing injured workers to teach best manual handling techniques to prevent re-injury.
