  • Advise that MHOR 1992 say that it is anything that uses hand or bodily force.
  • Does the task involve : holding loads away from the trunk twisting or stooping excessive reaching long carrying distances strenuous pushing or pulling unpredictable movement repetitive handling? Individual handler : Capability health problems disabilities pregnant special information training Is the load: heavy bulky/unwieldy difficult to grasp unstable/unpredictable strenuous pushing or pulling intrinsically harmful e.g. hot/sharp Environment are there : constraints on posture poor floors variations in levels hot/cold/humid conditions poor lighting conditions Other factors- do workers : find attire affects movement think there has been poor planning, scheduling, communication lack of training or information
  • Ask the groups to think about what they do outside of these limits.
  • Example legislation but other main ones are Management of Health & Safety at Work Reg’s 1999 MHSWR Manual Handling Operations Reg’s 1992 MHOR Reporting of Injuries & Dangerous Diseases Reg’s 1995 RIDDOR Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Reg’s 1998 LOLER
  • Ask the group to stand and feel muscles in own back then do slight stoop to fee the anchoring effect ( give health warning and demonstrate first.
  • Explain all about levers and other levers in the body, use your experience and examples of who you treat etc.
  • Have a go with chair push pull or handbag etc. (health warning again) ask them to watch you first. If they can’t then don’t

    1. 1. Learning & Workforce Intervention Specialists Object Handling Awareness TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    2. 2. All delegates will gain anawareness of risks associated with manual handling and of themeasure they must take to reduce injury to both themselves and others. TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    3. 3.  identify legislation related to manual handling demonstrate ability to calculate the risk level of a manual handling activity basic understanding of biomechanics practise principles of movement TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    4. 4. Can you identify with these common causes of musculoskeletal injury/pain? Cumulative strain Repetitive strain One off incident? TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    5. 5. Manual Handling Operations Regulations1992TILEO Risk AssessmentTake a typical handling situation at your place of work and consider…………. TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    6. 6.  the Task the Individuals Capability the Load the Environment the Other factors, such as attire, systems of work and equipment TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09

    12. 12. Biomechanics The SpineTI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    13. 13. TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    14. 14. TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    15. 15. Biomechanics The Muscles of the back and abdomen  Provide stability for the spine  Control spinal movements  Protect the vertebral coloumn TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    16. 16. TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    17. 17. Biomechanics Mechanical loading of the spine When upright load on spine arises mainly from effects of gravity When leaning forward tension in the back and hips increases causing increased load on the spine When the trunk is horizontal loading on the spine stems almost entirely from back muscle tension-this can be calculated TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    18. 18. Biomechanics When the trunk is horizontal Centre of back muscles to centre of motion 5 to 6 cm Lumbar Sacral disc to centre of upper body mass 25 to 35cm Leverage = 6 to1 For 30kg upper body mass = 180kg force If you lift extra load of 30kg lifted in this position force then =360kg TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    19. 19. 25 to 35cmW TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    20. 20. Biomechanics Static Loading causes a creep effect on the discs – Kazarian (1975)  Therefore avoid holding even light weights :- For long periods In a stooped position Whilst leaning forward At arms length CMPP:LOAD 0070/09 TI
    21. 21. Biomechanics  Feet must be in the correct position  Slightly apart an offset  Pointing in the direction of travelKeep loads within the shaded area when handling TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
    22. 22. Adopt and adapt the principles according to you! Stop and think Keep close Stable position Avoid stooping Use a secure hold Avoid twisting Lead with the head Move smoothly Vary positions TI CMPP:LOAD 0070/09
