Dangerous manual handling on stairs – We can win your claim!

We are pleased to have settled a case for a client of ours who was told to perform a dangerous manual handling task that resulted in injuries being sustained in the workplace. She was asked to carry heavy gift items down a flight of stairs where she was unable to use any handrail due to the nature of the items being lifted, and was overloaded as well.

Luckily she escaped with minor bruising and cuts to her legs but it was enough to cause injury and distress which was entirely preventable.

Garage lifting injury claim advice

There are many places of work where manual handling is a big part of the role, despite the job not being classed primarily as a manual handling orientated career. The truth is that any workplace is subject to The Manual Handling Operations Regulations because lifting can occur in all sorts of workplaces, from offices, to warehouses.

So what about lifting and pushing / pulling in a garage?

Travelling salesperson manual handling injury claim advice

Manual handling is something that must be addressed in nearly all forms of employment. Most people naturally think of warehouse operatives or construction workers when it comes to lifting and carrying claims, but the reality is it affects almost every working person.

As a travelling salesman or saleswoman, it’s likely you will need to carry round product specimens, information leaflets, laptops, and a whole host of other equipment and items. So there is a real risk of manual handling injuries in this line of work.

Injured lifting large loads on stairs at work – compensation claims advice

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations actually state that an employer must, where possible, avoid the need for any manual handling to take place at all. Where it cannot be avoided, tasks needs to be risk assessed and staff need to be comprehensively trained in safe lifting and carrying techniques.

Lifting large loads on stairs and steps is always going to be dangerous – so what if you are injured in an accident doing this? Can you make a claim for personal injury compensation?

Manual Handling Accidents Advice

When we hear ‘manual handling’ we often think of big, muscle-bound men loading vans as a bit of a stereotype. But in reality, manual handling can include any form of pulling, pushing, lifting and lowering objects in many workplace – so the chances are, whether or not you’ve noticed, you do it. You do not have to be working in a factory or a warehouse to lift and carry things on a daily basis.

In fact, manual handling related injuries contribute to 38% of injuries (HSE.gov.uk) which suggests that it happens frequently; therefore we can’t go wrong in knowing a bit about it.

Manual Handling Alone – The Risks of Injury!

Manual handling regulations in the UK are fairly tight. I see this as a good thing because it helps to stop injuries which can so easily be sustained if manual handling isn’t done in the right away.

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations primarily say that the need for manual handling should be avoided where necessary. Where it can’t, it needs to be done in the safest way possible. Manual handling alone can always pose a risk.

Injuries moving a patient – care home claims and hospital claims

Patients in care homes and hospitals with severely limited mobility will often need the assistance of staff on a continual basis. Whether a patient needs to be moved for a bed bath, or moved to remove bedding, or moved out of a bed completely perhaps, the task needs to be done safely.

Manual handling regulations apply for employers and employees in the same way they apply in any role that involves lifting and moving. Read on for more advice.

Lifting and Carrying (Manual Handling) Injuries at Work

For many work accident claims we can still offer 100% compensation agreements!

Lifting and carrying in the workplace can be dangerous enough in itself; but when important rules and regulations are ignored by employers, workers are at serious risk of injuring themselves in the line of duty.

An injury caused by manual handling, such as back injuries and other muscular injuries, can be very serious. So what happens if you’re injured due to no assistance, or a lack of assistance, for the tasks at hand?
