The amount of compensation you can claim will depend on the severity of your injuries and the impact they have had on your life.

Manual Handling Statistics

According to health and safety executive in 2020/21Manual handling, awkward or tiring positions and keyboard work or repetitive action were estimated to be the main causes of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. 

To avoid work-related musculoskeletal disorders, it is important to take care of your body. One way you can do this is by moving around during the day and using different positions at home or in front on computers without consistent sitting time which could lead into joint pain later down line when working with certain tools such as keyboards (or other types) may cause stress because there’s no give-and release feature like an mouse does!


What is Manual Handling?

Manual handling is any activity that requires an individual to lift, carry, or move heavy objects. It can also involve twisting or turning the body while carrying an object. Some examples of manual handling activities include lifting boxes or bags of materials, moving furniture, and using a dolly to transport heavy equipment.

Manual handling claims can be expensive for employers, and they can also lead to lost productivity due to employees being out of work while they recover from their injuries. 

This is why it is so important for employers to take measures to prevent these accidents from happening in the first place.


Preventing Manual Handling Accidents

There are a number of steps that employers can take to prevent manual handling accidents from occurring. First, employers should assess the risks associated with each task that requires manual handling.

They should then put safeguards in place to mitigate those risks, such as providing proper training for employees and ensuring that adequate safety equipment is available.

Employers should also create a culture of safety in the workplace by encouraging employees to report any potential hazards.

Encouraging employees to speak up if they feel unsafe while performing a task promoting safe working practices through posters or other forms of communication.


Compensation

No one expects to be injured at work, but unfortunately, accidents happen. 

If you have been injured at work as a result of manual handling, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

The amount of compensation you can claim will depend on the severity of your injuries and the impact they have had on your life.

What should I do if I’m injured in an accident at work?

If you’re injured in an accident at work, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if your injury seems minor, it’s important to get checked by a doctor or other medical professional. 

Once you’ve been seen by a doctor, you should then notify your employer of the accident and make sure your injury is recorded in an accident book.

Your employer is required to report all workplace accidents and injuries, so this is an important step in the process.

After you’ve reported the accident, you may then file a workers’ compensation claim.

This will help to ensure that you receive the financial compensation you need to cover medical expenses and lost wages. 

If your injury is serious, you may also want to consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident in the workplace that wasn’t your fault, including as a result of a co-worker’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact us online to see if you have a claim for compensation.
