Manual Handling Training

Are you interested in reducing work injuries, improving occupational health and improving productivity?

Physio Plus has a range of ergonomics and manual handling training solutions.  We know that improving culture around OHS, and particularly plain old common sense, leads to better awareness and less injuries in the workplace.

We complete regularly manual handling and ergonomics training from our MackayWhitsunday and Footscray clinics for groups including engineering firms, mining companies, nursing homes, hospitals and many of Queensland and Victoria’s biggest companies.

Our workshops typically include:

  • Basic manual handling concepts and definition
  • Hazard identification
  • Importance of correct manual handling
  • Legislation
  • Roles of employer and employee
  • Workplace initiatives
  • Risk factors including loads, duration and frequency, environmenal and personal factors
  • Elimination and control of risks
  • Safe work zones
  • Demonstrations and group practice

Most importantly, to best tailor training, we work with you to identify the needs of your workplace.
