Save Money & Time By Reducing Compensation Premiums & Workplace Injuries Through Manual Handling Training
Manual Handling Training in the Gold Coast
Each workplace is different and some are much more active than others. There is no one way to ensure that a working environment is safe and in keeping with health standards, and so it is important that employers consider and seek the advice of external consultants that are well-versed and can bring a level of understanding, experience and advice to the table that will stand them, and their employees, in good stead.
Here at Corporate Work Health Australia, we deliver manual handling training to Gold Coast businesses to ensure that they are compliant with the prevailing health and safety regulations. Our team is backed by qualified health professionals including occupational therapists, exercise physiologists, physiotherapists and osteopaths, all of whom have considerable experience in determining suitable and actionable solutions to boost worker health and safety.
Common, Identifiable Manual Handling Mistakes That Happen in the Gold Coast
There are plenty of things that we do every day, some of which we may not even be aware of, but that has a negative impact on our bodies. At Corporate Work Health Australia, we seek to highlight areas that pose a risk or threat to the wellbeing of the workforce through a manual handling risk assessment. Our manual handling course for Gold Coast businesses helps to bring these to the attention of those affected and from there we create new solutions that lead to good practices.
Some of the key things that are found in a lot of workplaces across Australia slip into the processes and procedures of even the most successful companies without being noticed. Companies that experience growth will naturally expand and change the scope of their work areas. However, in doing so, this may have a direct impact on the layout and efficiencies of your staff and increase the likelihood of injury or accident as a result.
There are countless workplace injuries every year that could be prevented by using a trolley or a cart. Picking or lifting and carrying may seem like the quickest way to get something done, but without knowing how to, or having an informed awareness of one’s ability to actually complete the task, this can strain and injure the body. The added downside is that productivity drops for the day and while your employee recovers. Undertaking a manual handling course can help educate your employees on the proper procedures to reduce the risk of injury.
One of the worst things a company can do is to ignore the complaints of their employees. If they are repeatedly noting strain or pain as a result of any of the processes they carry out, then this needs to be addressed. Your workforce knows where the flaws are, so we believe that including them in the conversation is key to finding better ways to work.
