Risk and Workplace Assessments
Employers are obligated to ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, that workers and other persons are not exposed to the risk of a musculoskeletal disorder associated with a hazardous manual task. The completion of a risk assessment for hazardous tasks demonstrates a clear process for the application of suitable control measures.
Our Onsite Injury Prevention Specialists are the ‘fresh eyes’ in your workplace and will assist you in identifying hazardous manual handling risk factors and recommend strategies to reduce these risks through a number of solutions such as worksite layout, procedural changes, education and training.
- Minimising health and safety risks
- Identify hazards
- Assessing & controlling risk
Using a risk matrix, tasks will be allocated a risk ranking. This ranking will enable your organisation to focus its resources on tasks where the risk is greatest. Our consultant can review any documented SOP’s against the way tasks are completed to identify any potential gaps in process and areas for improvement.
Manual Handling Risk Assessments
The aim of Bodycare’s ‘Think Risk’ program is to create a customised and job specific manual handling program, with an emphasis on empowering workers to apply a risk reduction mindset to every facet of their working day. To tailor the program effectively to your organisation, Bodycare can perform manual handling risk assessments within your workplace to evaluate the processes and techniques used by workers and identify injury risk and make recommendations for improvement.
