Preventing back (and other related) injuries by Gary Keohane

About the training

#Identification, Awareness & Prevention   #TAP   #Simple, Effective and Very Informative   #Plenty of good humor   #Focus and prevention

Gary will inform on various subjects and issues about (WR)ULDs to enable the audience to paint their own picture through plenty of interaction with him and each other with the aim of this TAP being in clear speak with plenty of good humor! Gary guarantees that some of the practical aspects of the TAP will not be forgotten as has been proven by audiences in the past. This TAP is aimed at the following managers and staff: • Senior managers to demonstrate commitment as well as enabling them to interact given opportunities. • Managers and supervisors who are directly responsible for staff who are involved in any work-related (manual handling) role where the risk of WRULDs is potentially high given the result of their locally-produced risk assessment-related information. • Staff who actually do this type of work so they‘re also aware of information at first-hand. Follow-up: Given this is not only a TAP session but the second part of the Package is also to view things from the workplace point of view so work processes and practices of a higher hazardous and risk nature can be observed and advice is duly given, given the situation or scenario at the time. Therefore, this initial Package is designed to cover 2 days. Additional days is an option where the necessity is foreseen (i.e. potential to audit at a later date, undertake refresher training periodically / annually or initial training in any of the company‘s other locations – if applicable).
