Injuries caused by lifting in the workplace are alarmingly commonplace. Injuries arising from manual handling of heavy loads account for almost half of all injuries suffered in the workplace.

If, in the course of your employment, you are required to lift, pull, push or carry heavy loads, your employer has a duty to ensure that you are properly trained in manual handling operations, receive adequate help from colleagues and where necessary, are assisted by mechanical machinery or equipment.
