Heavy Lifting Training and Awareness Event

Manual labour puts a significant strain on your body and not using correct techniques leaves individuals at risk of significant injury.

See the examples below for how one company addressed this topic among the workforce:

  • As a subcontractor, the company organised an event to help improve people’s understanding of issues around lifting heavy weights.
  • The company appointed a female Team GB weight lifter (Jo Calvino) and a Team GB weight lifting coach (Keith Morgan) to come to site to run the session.
  • A number of activities were organised for this participative event, with full sized weights used but only weighing 25kg.
