Following customer feedback, WorkPro are excited to announce the launch of a new Hazardous Manual Task Module.

Work health and safety is fundamental in every organisation today, however, statistics show that a high percentage of injuries are caused by manual handling.

The module includes:

  • Definitions and characteristics of hazardous manual tasks;
  • Understanding how hazardous manual tasks can cause injury;
  • How to identify, assess and control hazardous manual task risks
  • Understanding the obligations of the ‘person conducting the business or undertaking’ (PCBU)/employer/host organisation in the process of managing the risk of hazardous manual tasks
  • Understand your obligations as a worker in the process of managing the risk of hazardous manual tasks
  • How to apply risk management principles to hazardous manual tasks
