Moving heavy items on the stairs

Traditional methods of moving items on the stairs such as the sack barrow, bungees and cords, and blankets are becoming redundant since workplace manual handling injuries are rising.

28.2 million working days were lost in 2018/19, it is important that correct processes are in place to not only protect our businesses but to ensure employees are safe too.

Failing to do so will not only result in a personal workplace injury, but a potential litigation claim against the business.

Work-related injury cost the UK economy £15bn in 2017/18

An injury affects the individual and their families, plus there is further cost to the employer and wider society in terms of productivity and health care.
