NAME TAGS ___________________________________________________________ Today we are looking specifically at manual handling. The reason we are doing this is because manual handling has been identified as the biggest group of injuries in our workplace. We have had a number of injuries relating to this area recently. Ausdrill values its employees and wants to stop the occurrence of manual handling injuries in the workplace. We target a zero occurrence in this area, is it acceptable to say that we accept even one injury – no! So we are trying to work towards this target. Due to the nature of the work performed in the Ausdrill group we may never reach this but this is what we would like to achieve. This can only be achieved thru a concerted effort by all employees. Be aware and be safe.
More workers receive injuries from Manual Handling than any other category of injury.
Manual Handling injuries affect workers of any age.
Young men, 18-25yrs, most common injury is from lifting or being struck by moving objects.
