Hi there Everyone
this is not really a poll - its more just wanting to know what do you do?
Its a question re safe manual handling and transferring techniques that you may be using in your workplaces - to prevent and reduce injuries
My question centers around three areas -
1. Are you regularly taught safe lifting techniques If so how Often
2. What sort of equipment do you use - generalities here - i.e. belts, machines human aides etc
3 What area of nursing are you in - please be specific as l am trying to work out the areas i.e. - aged care , general nursing obstetrics ER etc.
Tell me how you prevent injuries - and if you are supported if injuries occur - l know this is similar to toher areas of discussion but please indulge me
If you have any suggestions re site for safe work practices please let me know am very interested in reduction of injuries in the workplace specifically manual handling injuries
