Hazardous Manual Tasks

 29% of all major workplace injuries in NSW are manual handling injuries. (WorkCover NSW Statistical Bulletin 2008-9)


 The solution is:

  1. Identify any hazardous manual tasks in your workplace.
  2. Assess the risks of hazardous manual tasks.
  3. Eliminate or control the risks.
  4. Monitor and review the risk controls.
  5. Inform, train and instruct workers in a readily understandable way about:
  • the nature of the risks in their hazardous manual tasks
  • how those risks must be controlled
