Manual handling is a critical aspect of many industrial and production environments. Improper handling can lead to various workplace injuries, from minor strains to severe musculoskeletal disorders. Implementing effective manual handling solutions is essential to safeguard employees’ health and enhance overall productivity. At Indeva, we specialise in providing state-of-the-art manual handling solutions designed to prevent workplace injuries and promote a safer work environment.

Understanding Manual Handling and Its Risks

The Importance of Safe Manual Handling

Manual handling involves lifting, carrying, pushing, or pulling objects by hand. While it is a common task in many workplaces, it poses significant risks if not performed correctly. Improper manual handling can result in injuries such as back pain, muscle strains, and joint problems. These injuries can lead to increased absenteeism, reduced productivity, and higher healthcare costs.

Common Manual Handling Injuries

Workplace injuries related to manual handling are prevalent and can severely impact employees’ health and well-being. Common injuries include:

  • Lower back pain and strain
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Wrist and hand injuries
  • Knee injuries

Understanding these risks underscores the need for effective manual handling solutions to prevent such injuries.
