Aims to reduce handling risks
12 December 2012
Offering both employers and employees guidance on the safest ways to lift, stack and move items in the workplace, Toyota Material Handling UK has published the latest edition of its guide to safe manual handling. T
The latest report from the HSE has found that there were 46,000+ incidents in the UK where manual handling caused an injury that led to a worker being absent for three days or more. The Toyota Manual Handling Guide gives simple rules to remember when handling loads, recommended lifting weight guidelines and advice on material handling equipment that could help reduce the risk to employees. Toyota believes the guide will help employers to ensure they are meeting their legal obligations to protect their workforce from injury.
