With our extensive work in the Utilities sector, we repeatedly see the same high risk movements contributing to musculoskeletal injury risk – one of the most common being “shovelling” or “digging”. Digging is a common task for utility workers which is why it is important that your employees have the correct knowledge to reduce their risk of injury.
In this article, we explore a few simple changes that will dramatically reduce the musculoskeletal risk profile of the task, which in turn has a direct impact on reduced injury rates across your employees.
