Overview
This Useful Guide promotes a new approach to managing manual handling and manual handling training.

The traditional approach emphasises regulation, with sanctions in place for those who fail to comply.

While this is important, James and Steve, the authors, believe that over-reliance on regulation has created a culture of unthinking compliance, where rules are enforced without thought or understanding as to why they were made in the first place.

Even worse, compliance is often at a minimum level, where boxes can be ticked but accidents, injuries and longer-term health problems are not prevented.

In the first four chapters of this Useful Guide James and Steve explore the current position and how it has developed.

In chapters 5-8 they then move on to consider what motivates people to behave as they do, and how we can apply this knowledge so that people are motivated to behave differently in the manual handling environment.

James and Steve believe that the key to this is effective leadership at all levels, from business owners and chief executives to supervisors and, most important of all, peers.

This Useful Guide is an ebook for immediate download and is suitable for everyone in your organisation.
