Ergonomic Risk Assessments
The ancient Greeks were probably amongst the first to understand the benefits of Ergonomics and Hippocrates is said to have prescribed how Surgeons should set out their workplace and the way tools should be positioned on their work.
VDU Risk Assessments
Ergonomics can be described as the study of designing tasks and work areas to maximize the efficiency and comfort of employees’ work. It studies how the person interacts with their work equipment in the workplace and rectifies identified factors.
Manual Handling Risk Assessment
Manual handling risk assessments are essential part of your safety management programme. Most companies provide manual handling training as the principal method of reducing risk of back injuries in the work place.
Manual Handling Training Courses at Guardian Safety
Manual Handling training is legally required for all employees involved in manual handling activities. What most people don’t realise is that all manual handling activities must be risk assessed by the employer with the view to eliminating or reducing the need to carry out manual handling tasks, if they are likely to cause injury, particularly to the back.
Guardian Safety provides a practical hands on approach to training which looks at the risk assessment process, as well as manual handling training. Our courses are very interactive and learners carry out a range of lifting activities which can be used within their own organisation as well as their day to day life.
