Wheelie bins are being blamed for a spate of serious hand injuries in elderly Australians…
Everyday, Aussies suffer from some sort of injury associated with the manual handling of wheelie bin rubbish.
Any employee who manually handles wheelie bin rubbish at work is at risk of injury. More recently business owners have implemented safety management systems around the safe manual handling of wheelie bin rubbish to avoid injury to employees.
Filling a wheelie bin with rubbish, is an everyday activity that causes countless accidents within the home and work environment. These may include a small scratch, a large laceration, or contamination through manual handling of wheelie bin rubbish. Either way, it’s a risk to community and employee safety. With any risk to community and employee safety comes the added burden of financial consequences, including medical bills and/or WorkCover claims.
