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. See what you need to do. For general information on factors that can lead to injury, visit the musculoskeletal disorder web pages.
