TITLE
Manual handling toolbox talk
ARTICLE
After an employee attended a three day manual-handling course, a manual handling toolbox talk was set up and shared with the other workers on site.

The toolbox talk covers statistics on manual handling injuries, costs of injuries to the employee and the employer, types of injuries and safe lifting techniques. It was hoped that using one of Tarmac’s own employees to convey the message would have a greater impact with the workforce as they would have more job and site specific knowledge than an outside trainer.
