The nature of the business is such that the material being handled ranges in weight from a few grams to several hundred kilograms. As such, appropriate PPE will need to be worn and at all times, safety shoes. Additionally, as everyone has their own threshold as to what they can sensibly lift, a level of self-regulation is needed to avoid injuries so a detailed level of manual handling awareness will be required. This will happen through training and self regulation. The wider team will, of course, help to ensure improvements are implemented and add appropriate processes to minimise risk.
