Imagine you select a random worker and place them in a new role. Their task is to move 15kg packages from a pallet on the floor to a conveyor belt at waist height for several hours at a time. What would the likelihood be of this worker sustaining a strain, sprain or at the very least muscular discomfort? Now lets implement proactive measures:
- Ensure the worker has perfect lifting technique with one to one physio guided manual handling training
- Raise the height of the pallet so the packages are between knee and waist height
- Offer muscle releases by a trained physio once per week and condition the workers body to become stronger through the back, core, legs and shoulders.
