Graham Marshall - Tuesday, February 01, 2011
We all know that manual handling jobs are a significant cause of relatively low consequence but high frequency incidents, costing individuals and organizations significant harm.

The consequences for workers harmed during manual handling tasks can be quite debilitating and depressing.

Anyone experiencing a bad back will know what I mean.

There is no need for me to re-invent the wheel here on manual handling.

Here's a link to a reasonable PowerPoint slideshow from the WA Department of Resources Safety that covers the main themes quite well.
