This video describes some of the associated risk factors for injuries (particularly low back injury) within the warehouse industry. Proper lifting and handling techniques are discussed as preventative methods to reduce the risk for developing these disorders.
It should be noted that it is a legal requirement for all lifting equipment to be inspected and passed as fit for use according to the rated lifting load. This includes all supporting beams, chain blocks, chains, ropes, slings, as well as bottle jacks and stays.
Make sure all equipment is on a register, and annual load tests are done before any certificates expire.
