We connected with Wade from CWH again to assist in this transition.

They assisted our team in transitioning to working from home in three ways: a group webinar education session, followed by workers completing a self-assessment form and then undertaking 1:1 consultations to deliver a tailored approach.

As a business we have made the transition smoother to ensure our workers are comfortable, and set up to perform their tasks safely at home.

The inner-city business for whom I work as Office Administrator recently engaged CWHA to deliver "Sit Safe" training seminars and conduct ergonomic assessments for all our staff. It was a very worthwhile undertaking. The information imparted in the seminars was interesting and applicable. The individual desk checks were thorough and valuable, as was the subsequent comprehensive report.

How Does Manual Handling Training And Assessment Positively Impact Your Business?

It is very easy to accept the norms and practices of a company once it is up and running. The original staff will develop ways of working that they then pass along to each new hire, but this can prove detrimental to the overall efficiency of the business where those practices are poorly thought through.

At Corporate Work Health Australia, we know from our vast experience that a well-crafted manual handling training and assessment program can do wonders to raise the awareness levels of employees to the potential dangers that they face every day. It emphasises how their behaviour has a negative impact and through re-education, this can help them to better understand how good practices will increase their efficiency and ability to work comfortably.

We believe that the best way to train a workforce is by doing so in their work environment. Having the ability to see the new techniques performed at their work stations and being able to participate ensures that their learning is relatable and, therefore, easier to pick up.

Don’t Just Train – Implement

Here at Corporate Work Health Australia, we believe that the best way for any company to engage with a manual handling risk assessment is to implement the changes that are necessary sooner rather than later. The reputation of your business could be affected as a result of an accident and it could become difficult to attract the best staff or even land new contracts as a result of poor work practices.

The Key Areas That Benefit From Manual Handling Assessment And Training

If you have reached the year’s end and believe that there are areas in your business that could benefit from a more streamlined approach, we encourage you to first complete manual handling assessment and training. While the desire may be there to eliminate some aspects of work systems until you fully appreciate the complexity of the role it makes little sense to adjust it.

It is often surprising to some employers what they learn from our manual handling safety assessments. Poor work practices that have been passed down from one employee to the next often pose an immediate risk to health and safety standards. In the absence of proper training that achieves uniform thinking, any workplace is susceptible to well-intentioned actions that result in harm, injury and accidents.

As such, one of the key areas that benefit from comprehensive manual handling assessment and training is the legal department. Whether you have an in-house team, or if you retain the services of a dedicated service provider, in the absence of effective health and safety procedures and practices, you can expect to pay out a lot of money to compensate workers for injuries. You may also face lengthy court battles that can cost a fortune because of poor assessment of manual handling hazards.

Your financials are the main area that is ultimately impacted when things go wrong. You lose productivity, you lose a valuable member of your team for an indeterminate amount of time, you must engage with the hiring process and invest in training. What’s more, you lose a lot of time, which cannot be recovered.

Why Is Manual Handling Assessment And Training Imperative To Your Workplace?

Manual handling is common in a lot of workplaces. When work is incorrectly carried out, it can lead to a range of musculoskeletal disorders that can affect the back, joints, and limbs. When workers are suffering and in pain, they are much less likely to perform at their optimum level, and therefore the productivity of your business is reduced. With the identification of these manual handling risks, training a manual handling assessor can be beneficial to avoid these injuries from taking place.

Manual handling can form an important part of many businesses, including farming, offices, factories, and warehouses, along with many more.

A manual handling assessment and training is legally required to identify hazardous activities, and from the assessment, eliminate the risk. By enlisting the help of Corporate Work Health Australia, you can be sure that your risk assessment has been completed thoroughly and that it allows you to carry out your legal obligations.

From your risk assessment, you may need to make some changes that could be to do with the layout, by using different objects for the tasks involved, or by using mechanical aids to protect workers.

You can rely on our expertise to identify hazards and assess their level of risk. From here, control measures can be decided upon and then put in place. An important step of the process is also to review the measures that have been put in place.

Coupled with our manual handling training, we put you in good stead to deliver a safe and functional working environment.
