Manual Handling In North Wales
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) manual handling causes over a third of workplace injuries. Manual handling includes lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling and carrying. If these tasks are not carried out correctly then injuries may occur. These injuries can sometimes be serious and can result in having to take time off work.
Employers have a duty of care to ensure that manual handling hazards are identified, their risks assessed and that appropriate steps are taken to control these risks.
