Manual handling training is about saving money and looking after the welfare of your most valuable asset, your employees. But it’s not enough to simply train them how to lift a box correctly – it’s about listening to your teams, observing their manual handling techniques while doing their everyday work tasks, determining what tasks they are avoiding and teaching them how to identify risks. Once we understand the particular risks your employees face, we can then problem solve with them how to effectively address the risk so that your team works out the solution.
Our experienced team of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Exercise Physiologists have treated musculoskeletal injuries and they understand the stresses that manual handling can place on the human body. They are highly skilled at identifying risks and analysing situations to effectively problem solve by working with both individuals and teams to come up with workable solutions that are tailored to the specific situations that your employees face every day at work. By working alongside your employees to come up with sensible solutions to their manual handling dilemmas, Workcom staff are able to help your teams, and hence your business, work more efficiently.
