Porto Manual Handling range

Porto Manual Handling range

One in three accidents at work are caused by manual handling.

Every year, 300,000 people in the UK suffer from back pain due to manual handling accidents.  The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) defines manual handling as the transporting or supporting of a load, including lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving.

For some members of staff, manual handling accidents can result in long periods of sick leave and for others it can even lead to the end of their career.

Beds and mattresses are awkward to manoeuvre so this is often a job that is left to the last minute, or just not completed.

Within our Porto range we have a number of items that help moving beds and mattresses around as quickly, easily and safely as possible, minimising injury or undue strain on the handler.
