It has been well documented within the construction Industry on the issues with regards to manual handling and back problems. There is a concerted drive to support this exposed area by many organisations
Working with QBE Insurers and Backcare (the charity for healthier backs) we have produced a training pack specifically targeting the issues within the construction industry.
Aim- To focus on Sub Contractors/SMEs. History tells us many large organisations have made good steps in health and safety training but SME’s have found it difficult due to costs and logistics. The idea of this Construction Pack is to provide this well needed information by concentrating on the residual risks whilst working within their budgetary and logistical constraints.
Objectives – To finally provide a correct, realistic and achievable approach to manual handling by adopting techniques which will reduce the pressure on the body when carrying out our daily tasks, therefore reducing the risk of injury.
