How to Control Sydney Manual Handling Risks

Musculoskeletal complaints are most commonly heard of in the office and manual handling work environments. The fact is that almost 70% of the time spent working in an office requires little physical activity and so, when it is necessary to engage muscles that have perhaps become tired and weak over time, this can increase the chances of an injury occurring.

At Corporate Work Health Australia, our tailor-designed Sydney manual handling course affords businesses the possibility of gaining an objective perspective on their work processes and procedures, so that they can be tweaked and improved for an overall healthier workplace.

Here’s how we do it:

  • Workstation adjustments
    There are many ways that you can adapt your workspaces to ensure that the risk of a manual handling accident happening is reduced. Given a little consideration, it may become evident that by simply adjusting a workstation it reduces the requirement to reach, stretch, twist and bend.
  • Modifying movement & techniques
    Think about how your employees carry out their daily tasks and ask them where the greatest burden or strain is felt. You may quickly gain an appreciation of just how taxing the act of lifting even a relatively light object is over the course of a day. Changing how things are moved, or modifying an object so that they are easier to hold can do wonders and these are relatively simple adjustments to make.

Here at Corporate Work Health Australia, we believe that in delivering effective manual handling training, this work serves companies best when it is monitored over time. Our team can work with you to deliver identifiable results and make further adjustments to maximise comfort and productivity.
