    The logistics sector has a rate of musculoskeletal disorders 50% higher than the na-tional average. With manual handling injuries the second most common injury type suffered in the workplace, and the main cause of MSDs, 16,000 work related cases were reported in 2021. These injury and industry figures make for alarming and worrying reading for logistics, warehousing and transport operations. Manual handling injuries are largely avoidable with the right training in place, but due to time and budget constraints, it's often overlooked. In this session, Alex Samson Director of Systems & Learning Development of RTITB will explore how operations can implement self-paced eLearning to help tackle this issue, as well as how employ-ers can take a more holistic approach, with the ultimate goal of reducing the risk of incident and injury.

    TMHUK take a look at the importance of good mental wellbeing, how they have implemented processes to help their team members through the pandemic period and how poor mental health can impact on physical accidents.

    To support the reduction of accidents and the safe use of MHE, we will discuss operator training and how correct training is key plus how technology and design is aiding in safety (Telematics, truck design) and sustainability (Li-ion / Fuel Cell).
