Manual Handling Risk Assessments

 

Assessing your workplace for potential hazards to your employees and others is an absolute minimal safety requirement under the OHS Act 2004. In Victoria, over 40% of all workplace injuries are caused by over stressing the body. Many of these injuries could have been avoided. Regular risk assessments should be a cornerstone for any risk management plan.

Following our onsite assessment, a detailed report of the findings found as a result of the risk assessment process will be compiled. Our experienced consultant will provide a list of recommendations and control strategies that may be used to assist with decisions on how to control those identified risks. Our overall aim is to reduce the potential for musculoskeletal injury and achieve a safer workplace setup.

To achieve an accurate result, we believe collaboration with key persons is a non-negotiable. People who may be involved in the process may consist of: production managers, site managers, supervisors, team leaders, OH&S reps, employees etc.
