Laundries and Dry Cleaners Manual Tasks Safety Checklist (Australia) Mobile App
Some of the most common tasks causing injuries in laundries and dry cleaners are pushing and pulling heavy trolleys, lifting and carrying laundry bags, loading and unloading washers and dryers and folding & sorting laundry.
How does it work?
Manual tasks can cause injury immediately e.g. lifting something heavy and injuring you back, or over time through gradual wear and tear on your body (e.g. damaging your shoulder as a result of reaching into washers and dryers or folding and sorting laundry). The "Laundries and Dry Cleaners Manual Tasks Safety Checklist" is intended to evaluate risks and reduce potential injuries.
