PRIMARY RISK FACTORS
  • Forceful exertions of weights lifted/moved
  • Awkward and Static Postures
  • Repetition especially with MANUAL Lifting
  • Twisting back and neck during lifting tasks
high risk tasks
HIGH RISK TASKS
  • Manual transfers from bed to chair
  • Manual repositioning in bed
  • Manual lifting from the floor
  • Attempting to STOP falls to floor
bottom line
BOTTOM LINE
  • THERE IS “NO” WAY TO LIFT SAFETY…

MANUALLY

common issues to poor lifting practices
COMMON ISSUES TO POOR LIFTING PRACTICES
  • Placed in job without receiving training
  • Numerous employees receive classroom training, ONLY!
  • No training provided on lifting equipment and/or no lifting training is provided
  • Equipment defective
  • Beds cranks defective
  • DO NOT HAVE TIME!
what can we do
WHAT CAN WE DO?
  • Address Healthcare Ergonomics
    • Fit the job to the worker
  • ID risk factors & discuss with Policyholder
  • ID appropriate equipment for the Policyholder
  • Next step is to minimize risks through…

Work Practice Controls

Or

Administrative Controls

workplace controls
WORKPLACE CONTROLS
  • Plan work
  • Get help
  • Eliminate unnecessary movements
  • Use neutral or good body postures
  • Don’t allow use of broken equipment
  • Use good housekeeping practices
  • Use adjustments on equipment
administrative controls
ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROLS
  • Good and appropriate training of employees
  • Job rotation
  • Good lifting policies and procedures
  • Ergonomics Training
  • Establish “lift teams”
