While hazards in the office may not be as immediately obvious as in some other workplaces, they still present a range of health and safety issues. Some of these include the effects of prolonged and repetitive work, lifting and moving loads and coping with the demands of the digital workplace. To help navigate through these hazards, Ballarat Office Staff are invited to participate in office ergonomic and manual handling training on Thursday, December 15, 10:00am in the Gariwerd Room. Sally Warren, from Marsh Consultants will be conducting the training and will provide advice on –
- How to set up your work station for maximum benefit.
- What is hazardous manual handling.
- What the best ways are to safely lift and move loads.
Following the training, Sally will be available for one on one support and can assist you to set up you workstation for optimum results.
