Your “BACK” is for life “HANDLE” it right

Handling, postural issues and working with display screen equipment are high risk and could cost you and your business a significant amount of money in employee time off and compensation.

The data on musculoskeletal disorders is alarming and the most common form of ill health; back pain effecting 49% of the population per year and costing society over £5 billion. It is estimated that four out of five adults (80%) will experience back pain at some stage in their life. Nearly 5 million working days were lost as a result of back pain in a one year period. This means that on any one day 1% of the working population are on sickness leave due to a back problem.

Adequate training and robust systems of work can significantly reduce and minimise the risk to employees.

Legislation places duties on organisations like yours to ensure that staff concerned with all aspects of manual handling tasks participates in mandatory training programmes with rigorous standards that must be maintained.

For over 20 years Ergoway, a leading authority in Manual Handling and Back Care, has worked successfully in the area of manual handling and display screen equipment in industry, commercial and distribution throughout Cumbria, as well as Local Authorities and the NHS.
