How does it work?
These are only a few of the manual tasks that may cause injury. Any task that involves high force, use of awkward or sustained postures, or repetitive movements may result in injury to employees. These tasks need to be identified and addressed through a risk management process to reduce the likelihood of injury. The Home Based Care Manual Tasks Checklist (Australia) mobile app was developed to help assess and reduce the risk of injury from manual tasks. The app covers eliminating the hazard or hazardous task, re-designing, modifying, altering or substituting the hazard or hazardous task and administrative controls.
