Christmas is nearly upon us and it can be a demanding time for those working throughout the festive season. The run-up to Christmas can be especially busy for those who work in haulage and distribution.
From people lifting heavy parcels around warehouses to delivery drivers moving products across the country, workers in this industry are vulnerable to the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling.
The HSE’s step-by-step guide to manual handling at work should help you minimise these risks.
There is also advice for users and suppliers of agency/temporary workers, as many of these are specifically employed for the festive period.
