Manual handling causes over a third of all


workplace injuries. These include work-related


musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as pain


 and injuries to arms, legs and joints, and


repetitive strain injuries of various sorts.


The term manual handling covers a wide variety


 of activities including lifting, lowering, pushing,


 pulling and carrying. If any of these tasks are


 not carried out appropriately there is a risk of


injury.
