[ [ According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics, almost 50 per cent of all accidents reported each year from the health and social care sector involve
manual handling and in particular from assisting people with mobility. In 2001/2002 there were a reported 40.4 per cent handling accidents from social work activities alone!
