Save Money & Time By Reducing Compensation Premiums & Workplace Injuries Through Manual Handling Training
Manual Handling Traning Course in Perth
The human body was not designed for the sedentary lifestyle that the modern world imposes on it. The fact of the matter is that almost 70% of our days are spent on activity that is somewhat detrimental to our overall wellbeing. Where this really matters is in the workplace, particularly when employees must engage in physical exertion that may bring about strain. The lack of activity as a result of a sedentary lifestyle may increase the chances of incurring injury, which is bad news for business everywhere.
However, at Corporate Work Health Australia, our manual handling training in Perth allows business owners a resource that they can depend on for a thorough assessment of their work practices and solutions that will improve the overall wellbeing of their workforce.
We develop and implement tailored solutions for your specific business and through our training programs, your staff can gain a vital appreciation of how best to engage with their work environment and lower the risk of injury.
We believe that our service affords employers the chance to become fully compliant with the prevailing legal requirements and our systematic and logical approach to managing risk will lead to the development of strategies that will enhance the productive possibilities of the workforce and minimise the potential hazards and risk factors.

Give Your Staff the Best Training
Along with the benefits that manual handling can bring your business such as greater productivity and fewer sick days from your staff, you also have a legal obligation to protect your workers.
As an employer, you are legally obliged to eliminate risks wherever possible, and where it is not, to reduce them. This can be done in different ways, such as using mechanical aids. We can teach your staff the best ways to use these, and you can be confident that you have done everything in your power to make your workplace as safe as possible.
Contact us today and we can create the right manual handling package for you, educating your staff and creating safer work practices for all concerned. We will be happy to provide you with a free quote, and we look forward to working with you.
The Benefits of Manual Handling Training in Perth
Here at Corporate Work Health Australia, we believe that a complete approach to a manual handling assessment is the best way to achieve real results for your company. As such, our manual handling course in Perth offers business owners the opportunity to have an external body engage with key stakeholders to determine the risk assessment of their processes and to then learn what was found and what measures can be implemented to best control the risks.
The process has many benefits for the company as a whole. First and foremost, where your workforce is concerned, they stand to benefit from improving their work skills by adopting new practices that place less of a burden on them physically and promote greater overall wellbeing.
When we become familiar with an environment, we can fail to see the dangers or risks that surround us. An objective risk assessment will help you determine which employees are potentially unsafe and which are at risk of incurring an injury. This affords you the possibility to make the necessary changes to remove or limit the possibility of risk, and train staff so that they are more cognizant of any dangers while they work.
The team here at Corporate Work Health Australia has, on countless occasions, seen the development of employees through manual handling training and ergonomic assessments in Perth as they gain confidence in the tasks that they complete as a result of the changes implemented. This can boost productivity and improve the morale of workers who may previously have felt unsafe, unproductive or uneducated in terms of how best to complete their work.
A Manual Handling Course Could Spare You Thousands of Dollars in Perth
Training courses that are not designed to specifically improve the quality of the work completed by workers are sometimes regarded as unnecessary or specific to industries that are removed by a great degree from the ones we occupy.
Manual handling training in Perth is something that is of benefit to workers in all industries. While the occupations that typically show the highest rate of serious claims include manual labour, the operation of machinery and driving, this does not mean that employees that are engaged in less physically taxing work are insulated from strain or serious injury.
Here at Corporate Work Health Australia, we have tailored our training courses to a vast range of different businesses, occupying a variety of different industries. A manual handling risk assessment is the key to a much more productive workplace. While safety standards are often determined by the nature of the work carried out, protective measures that serve the physical and mental wellbeing of your workforce are just as important to pursue.
Given that close to thirty million dollars are spent each year in Australia as a result of injuries, it seems obvious to us that many industries, companies and even individuals are ignoring the potential risks that surround them every day. Addressing this colossal number starts with effective advice, delivered by certified health professionals of the highest standing.
Engaging with our manual handling courses could be the difference between paying out a major claim in the thousands or watching your efficiency standards rise.
How You Can Identify Manual Handling Risks in the Workplace
If you are wondering whether your workplace is a minefield for your employees and that accidents are waiting to happen as a result of the practices in place, then there are a few things that you can do today to identify where danger lurks.
The best source of information is, of course, your workers. Taking the time to sit down with them and learn where they see waste, danger, potential hazards and issues throughout their day is a highly effective way that determines where improvements need to be made. It is also a great way to identify differences in approach to work practices.
A manual handling course allows Perth business owners to proactively address negative behaviour in the workplace. As the person at the top of the organisation, another way to identify whether there might be a problem with work systems in an area is to review the workplace injury records. A quick scan of reported accidents and injuries that resulted from manual handling will pinpoint the areas of your business that clearly need to be looked at in greater depth.
Finally, as the owner of the business, you know what you expect of your employees and understand how things should be done. After all, you created the culture that exists. So, take the time to walk through the different work areas and consider what best practice looks like and note where things are falling short.
Early Intervention is Essential
At Corporate Work Health Australia, we believe that early intervention is essential. Whether you personally correct the work carried out by your staff or not, a uniform message must be communicated so that all employees are on the same page.
That’s where our manual handling training helps Perth companies. We can be the impartial voice that communicates your message and teach the workforce how best to carry out their manual tasks. No matter which industry you are in, it is recommended training that demonstrates your commitment to a safe workplace.
How a Proactive Step Could Save Your Perth Business Thousands
Taking proactive steps to negate the possibility for lost productivity, employee accidents and the potential for costly legal claims is something that all companies can do today. The solutions that come out of ergonomic assessments and manual handling assessments may be simple tweaks to your existing operational procedures, but until they are pointed out, they may not become apparent until it is too late.
