Manual Handling Policy
This Manual Handling Policy provides a course of action to follow when establishing Manual Handling Procedures. Hazardous manual tasks increase the risk of injury to workers, and this manual handling policy will maintain a healthy working environment.
With over a third of injuries in Great Britain being avoidable Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs), it sends businesses a message to improve their manual handling procedures. To avoid time wastage, risk, financial losses and injuries to valuable staff, implement strict adherence to a Manual Handling Policy.
This policy covers the transfer of loads via movement or the bearing of any load.
Legal Liability Claims
MSDs claims feature heavily in liability claims. Unless there are comprehensive records on file, legal history indicates that refuting claims can be very challenging.
Strengthen your company’s claim profile with tailored, accessible manual handling policies, extensive training, risk assessments, and documented controls measures.
Staff protection makes financial sense, and regulations require business owners to eliminate avoidable hazardous manual handling.
Manual handling policies will have a direct and quick impact on accidents, absenteeism, and liability claims. This will reduce business risk, improve productivity and protect employees and, therefore, increase employee engagement.
