Event description

Description

Research has demonstrated that teaching lifting techniques is not an effective intervention, as the risk isn’t controlled and it relies on worker behaviour.

PErforM is a simple manual task risk management program based on participative ergonomics, and is an internationally recommended approach for reducing musculoskeletal disorders.

PErforM provides a framework to help managers / supervisors to engage with workers at all levels to identify, assess and control manual tasks risks within their workplace. The idea of PErforM is that the worker is the expert in performing their work tasks.

The PErforM program has been used successfully in a wide range of industries and can be applied to most types of hazardous manual tasks. This train the trainer workshop provides guidance on preparing for and delivering the PErforM program in your own organisation.
