Legislative requirements for assessment and risk reduction associated with DSE and Manual Handling tasks within your company need a proactive and practical approach to work solutions. Hu-Tech staff have been involved in the development and testing of the legislation and assessment tools currently used by the HSE. We have off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions for the following assessment requirements:
Chairs, monitors, laptops, mice, keyboards, and hundreds new devices and support equipment all need understanding of their features, functions and effects in order to be used in the best combinations for individual users.
The more physical tasks around work sites, from vehicles, warehousing or site, require manual handling of tools, materials and other loads that can lead to uneven or prolonged loading on the musculoskeletal system. If poorly designed or undertaken with bad techniques, can lead to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) including Upper Limb Disorders (ULDs) or Repetitive Strain Injuries.
A proactive Risk Management approach will include detailed assessment and relevant, practical training courses.
