Whoever you are and whatever your job, size and strength, you are likely to find yourself involved with lifting and moving objects. Thousands of accidents and injuries are caused each year by incorrect lifting techniques.
This video demonstrates the correct techniques and will be a vital training aid for those responsible for reducing accidents in the workplace.
The programme looks at the wide variety of sizes and shapes of loads, in many different situations, and shows how to put into practice the principles of safe lifting and manual handling.
It teaches you to:
- think about the task
- assess the load
- plan how to lift the load
- prepare as necessary to lift it
- perform the lifting properly
Many of the correct techniques are demonstrated by Gary Taylor, former ‘World’s Strongest Man’. To reinforce points about technique, the DVD also includes footage from previous ‘World’s Strongest Man’ competitions.
