Training to reduce injuries

According to the authorities more than 25% of all plant operator injuries reported are associated with manual handling. The majority of reported manual handling injuries result in over-three-day injuries, most commonly a sprain or strain, often of the back. While fatal injuries are rare, accidents resulting in a major injury, such as a broken arm, are much more common accounting for nearly 10% percent of all reported injuries. Considering the above, it makes good sense to take all reasonable steps to reduce the risk of Injury from manual handling; however an employer also has a legal requirement to do so. The employer should avoid the need for hazardous manual handling, so far as is reasonably practicable, assess the risk of injury from any manual handling that can’t be avoided and reduce the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling, so far as is reasonably practicable. At Michael Spiller Training Services, we can design training programmes that will not only help you reduce injuries but also help you achieve business goals.
