SmartMove Comprehensive

SmartMove Comprehensive is our most effective Injury Program that specifically targets musculoskeletal injuries associated with performing manual tasks

SmartMove Comprehensive is the perfect injury prevention solution for workplaces that are experiencing a high frequency of musculoskeletal injuries due to hazardous manual tasks. The program address the three core factors that ultimately contribute to the risk of an employee sustaining a musculoskeletal injury:

Manual Task Risk Assessments

Onsite Review of the Manual Task

We perform a review of the hazardous manual tasks in order to identify and document the risks associated with the tasks and provide recommendations for control measures that can be utilised to reduce the risk. Using this information and data, we then customise the entire Manual Handling Training Package specific to the high risk manual tasks and workplace.
