Manual Handling & Injury Prevention Training
An Integrated Health Corporate Physiotherapist is able to observe manual handling tasks and identify the safest technique to reduce the risk of injury to workers. Training in principles of manual handling and key safe job-specific behaviours increases employee awareness of their posture and how they move throughout the day.
Supervisors or ‘manual handling champions’ can be trained to identify these key safe behaviours and provide feedback to their colleagues.
As well as safe lifting techniques our educational package covers the following topics:
- Common aches/pains and what to do about them
- The importance of staying ‘job fit’
- Ageing: what it does to our body and what we can do about it!
- Job specific stretches and exercises
