Manual tasks risk management training
Manual Tasks Risk Management Training is much more than learning how to lift! You can educate your workplace on how to assess the risk of manual tasks and how to take responsibility for managing their own risks associated with manual tasks.
The focus on training should really reduce risks AND improve productivity, not just tick a box.
Manual Tasks Risk Assessment:
We believe that optimising the safety of manual tasks should be treated as a risk management process. Mount Isa Physiotherapy utilises the latest ergonomic research and benchmark risk management models to educate managers, supervisors and workers regarding the manual handling risk factors inherent in your workplace and provide practical tools to assist manual task problem solving and risk management.
• A best practice Manual Tasks Risk Assessment tool (ManTra) provides a systematic basis for identifying and ranking the physical risks associated with manual handling tasks.
• Job roles are observed and videotaped by our consultants and incorporated into training packages to provide relevant illustrative knowledge and problem solving based assessment of workers competency. Workers see themselves in their own
• Familiar work environment and are asked to problem solve situations that they are familiar (and often complacent) with.
Being aware of job-specific risk factors, along with the basic physiology of injury and healing processes helps to improve the risk management process and promote better insight into priority areas for job redesign. Our physiotherapists can tailor training packages to your needs to up-skill management and supervisory staff in benchmark methods of assessing manual task risk factors.
