Manual handling risk management

Manual handling includes activities where you have to lift, lower, push, pull, carry, move, hold or restrain an object.

If performed incorrectly, manual handling can put your employees at risk of injury.

These kinds of injuries are the most significant contributor to occupational injury in Australia, costing our economy approximately $28 billion every year*.
