National worker’s compensation statistics indicate that one third of all occupational injuries in Australia happen during manual handling. Manual Handling training and education is an effective way to reduce the prevalence of these injuries.
To enhance effectiveness, Manual Handling Training programs should be customised to workers job and tasks demands. Bodysmart combines a number of investigatory techniques to understand each organisation’s unique performance issues and creates a program that will be suitable and interactive for workers, and goal orientated to meet the needs of the organisation. Our therapists aim to integrate real work examples into their programs and presentations. This allows workers to relate to information presented and also improves retention levels and effectiveness of the program.
