Safe lifting training for workers
Workers involved in lifting operations are posed with risks such as MSDs and property damage from incorrect manual handling activities. To significantly avoid or reduce these negative effects, proper manual handling techniques must be adopted. Safe manual handling training will help workers work safely and boost their safety attitude.
Manual Handling has to do with a wide range of activities such as lifting, lowering, carrying, pulling and pushing. If done incorrectly, these seeming basic activities can result in serious injuries, property damage and even death.
According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) UK, one-third of injuries at work result from manual handling ativities. Often, manual handling injuries are quite cumulative in nature, that is, individuals affected may not notice the damage to their bodies until breaking point.
One common effect of manual handling is Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) are injuries or disorders that affect the muscles, joints, nerves, tendons, cartilage and spinal discs. These injuries are not only painful and debilitating but can become a temporary or permanent disability to the affected person.
Other injuries that could arise from manual handling tasks include cuts by load, bruises, fracture or dislocation from falls while moving load and/or property damage.
