Health & Safety Policy Development

A strong manual handling policy to manage the risk of back, neck and other joint injuries from manual handling activities is essential to show the overall direction and commitment of senior management to the elimination of these endemic risks within your company. Senior management shows leadership and commitment to the safety of all staff by creating firm directions for supervisors and staff to follow in making the workplace a safe environment for all staff, contractors and visitors.

Backsafe has been assisting firms for more than 20 years to develop workable manual handling policies to eliminate or mitigate musculo-skeletal injuries from the workplace. Clever policy, diligent risk management strategies and meaningful training are important in the move towards a zero harm workplace.
