What causes injuries related to manual handling and repetitive
motion?
The most common injuries to the back and neck may be caused by:
·  handling heavy loads
·  frequent and repetitive lifting
·  handling loads that are difficult or awkward to grip because of their size and shape
·  awkward postures while lifting, such as twisting, bending, or reaching
·  slipping on greasy or wet floors
·  extreme bending of the neck or back for long duration
You can take the following steps to prevent these injuries:
- Reduce physical exertion of the hands, arms, and shoulders.
- Reduce excessive gripping force.
- Design and organize the workplace to make manual handling easier.
- Provide lifting and handling equipment.
- Use safe techniques when handling loads.
- Provide training in manual handling skills.
