Manual Handling In Construction - Podcast

You can now listen to HSE's podcast episode and support the 'Your health. Your future' campaign focused on moving and handling materials in construction.

Last year, 40,000 construction workers reported suffering with work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

This episode of the podcast series discusses what the industry can do to promote change and protect its workforce from the risks of MSDs.

It features a conversation with Matt Birtles, Principal Ergonomics and Human Factors Consultant at HSE, and Peter Crosland, National Civil Engineering Director at CECA.

They cover the impact that MSDs can have on workers, employers' legal responsibilities and the sensible control measures that can be introduced regardless of the size of the construction site.

Manual Handling Training will make delegates aware of the regulations regarding the moving and handling of objects. Delegates will learn about the atonomy of the spine and muscular system and the safe moving and handing techniques under controlled conditions.
