Organisations have a duty to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, workers and others are not exposed to health and safety risks. This duty includes; implementing control measures to prevent people being injured by moving vehicles at the workplace, reducing the numbers of slips, trips & falls, as well as manual handling incidents.
These types of incidents alone represent about 84% of all occurrences in warehouses and cost the Australian community almost $4 billion.
