The Code of practice from Safework Australia for hazardous manual tasks is 71 pages long! Pages and pages of regulations, definitions, illustrations and let's face it- rules on what a business owner MUST
do to control the risks! It’s a cracking read!
- Employees lifting completed trusses and stacking them IS considered a hazardous manual task!
- Having a team lifting policy- STILL a hazardous manual task!
- Ignore it- I’ve never had an issue- Why now?
- Eliminate the risk while at the same time increase your plant productivity and efficiency!
