injury through out all industry groups.
Good posture and lifting techniques can help reduce injuries but research
supports a more overall approach that involves Risk management. Where
hazards are identified and assessed then eliminated or reduced, through
changes to the work environment and/or work practices, is proven to be a
more effective way to prevent manual handling injury.
