Moving and handling is a key part of the working day for most employees; from moving of equipment, laundry, catering, supplies or waste to assisting residents in
moving. Over 50% of injuries arise from the moving and handling of people. Poor moving and handling practice can lead to: back pain and musculoskeletal disorders, which can lead to inability to work moving and handling accidents ? which can injure both the person being moved and the employee discomfort and a lack of dignity for the person being moved You must take action to prevent or minimise the risk of injury.
