Prevent injuries through education and practical training

Many workplaces involve manual handling tasks that can significantly increase the risk of injuries. Surprisingly, over 30% of workplace injuries are attributed to manual handling activities, often resulting from inadequate training in safe practices.

Typical activities like lifting, pushing, pulling, and carrying not only put repetitive strain on the body but also introduce risks such as awkward and unbalanced postures, which can lead to strain injuries or even a back injury.

Phoenix’s training offers practical, interactive sessions focusing on manual lifting, employing proper lifting techniques, and using mechanical aids to ensure health and safety in your work environment.
