Lifting heavy items in the workplace can result in lower back pain and neck pain if you're not careful. HSE.co.uk (Health & Safety Executive) suggests that where there is a risk from a manual handling task, you should try to avoid the task first and if the task cannot be avoided, then the risk of injury occurring must be minimised.
In order to minimise the risk of injury, carry out a manual handling assessment which focuses on:
- the task
- the load
- the working environment
- individual capability
- other factors
If, after completing a risk assessment, the risk is still too great then consider using systems to assist manual handling such as trucks and trolleys. At Dalvie we boast a wide range of sack trucks, trolleys and pallet trucks which can not only save you from injury but can speed up the warehouse process drastically.
Trucks and trolleys make manual handling a breeze!
