Lift ergonomics to a higher level

The importance of good ergonomics for healthcare workers

Corporate News:  Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Imagine a nurse helping a heavy patient out of bed and into a wheelchair manually. The patient is completely dependent on the nurse’s help to get out of the bed. Later that day the same nurse is manually trying to move the patient back into the bed from the wheelchair. Can this task be performed safely and without the nurse risking injury?

Maybe the nurse is strong enough to perform the tasks or have the right working techniques to avoid injury. However, the fact is that health care workers continue to suffer musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) at an unacceptably high rate due to manual lifting, moving and repositioning of patients, residents or clients.
