Ergonomics – a different look at manual handling

Most people have learning, heard or read about safe lifting techniques. Keep your back straight, your head up, bend your knees etc.

However, there are some great systems which go way beyond this. They work in the office, in the home and on any occasion where there is a need to lift, pull, push etc.

Why are these great systems? Quite simply and brilliantly – they take account of the body’s  ’design’. Joints, muscles, tendons and so-on all have their best operating zones and limitations. If you learn how to work within these capabilities you are much safer and less likely to suffer from problems acquired over both long and short term mis-use.
