Did you know that one third of all workplace injuries are caused by heavy lifting?
In official terms it’s called ‘manual handling,’ because these accidents can occur at any stage; while you’re lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying something heavy.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) estimated that 1.6million working days were lost in 2012/13 to manual handling injuries, while the Labour Force Survey revealed the average time off work for the victims is 10.8 days.
Those statistics are significant enough for both workers and employers to take them seriously.
Proper training is vital when a job requires lifting, whether it involves machinery such as forklifts, hoists or conveyors, or is entirely by hand.
Your employer has a duty to provide it. If training is inadequate or absent, and you’re injured as a result, you could be entitled to compensation.
