Worcester no win no fee* lawyers and manual handling accidents

Many employers prevent manual handling accidents by making sure that they risk assess all lifting tasks thoroughly. This has to start by identifying what lifting tasks are taking place in the work premises. Here are a few examples of lifting tasks that could go wrong and could end up as part of a claim:

  1. Care workers are required to move residents around the care home. The residents may need to be moved in and out of a bed or bath or they may need to be moved to the dining room or recreational room. Residents have varying degrees of mobility ad some may not be able to help themselves at all. Some resident may be very heavy and will put a significant strain on those who are trying to lift them. If the lift is not carefully assessed and controlled and if the correct equipment is not used then it easy to see how a manual handling accident could occur.
  2. Employees in manufacturing plants often have to lift bulk containers of parts or ingredients from one part of the factory to another. This can put a huge strain on their bodies, especially if the action is repeated many times a day. It is up to the employer to assess this work task and to put a safe system of work in place. This does not have to be complicated, it could be as simple as providing a trolley so that goods can be wheeled instead of lifted. Employers could also arrange for goods to be delivered in smaller containers so that less bulk lifting is required.
  3. Employees on building sites often have to move large objects from one part of a building to another. Even if several people are lifting at once this can still be risky. An employer can avoid problems by proving lifting equipment.
