Make your workplace safer

Safe Work Australia is reminding employers to make their workplace safer. Australia's most common work-related injuries are to the back, knees and shoulders.

These injuries are often caused by lifting or handling:

  • crates
  • cartons
  • boxes
  • cases
  • drums
  • kegs
  • barrels
  • cans
  • people in a medical setting.

It's important to think about what changes you could make in your business to improve your manual handling processes.

You can also encourage your employees to use correct lifting techniques when handling large and heavy objects.
