At some point Authentic Ted Ginn Jr Jersey , 8 in 10 of us will experience back pain and figures from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) report that poor manual handling is responsible for 30% of all workplace injuries. Manual handling training is not just important for people who do regular heavy lifting, but for anyone who does ANY sort of lifting and carrying – that’s almost everyone. All “manual handling” needs to be done properly. An awkward sideways or sudden movement, regular or repetitive tasks – they could all cause back strain. Your back is a wonderful piece of technology, but also a vulnerable one and it needs to be taken good care of.

Manual handling technique isn’t just learning the correct way to hold yourself; most of it is thinking about what you are going to do before you do it. Always test the weight, always consider the route: are there stairs Authentic Alex Okafor Jersey , doors to be opened, is the lighting sufficient, is there somewhere to put it down? These are all examples; there are many more factors that should be considered.

Five years ago, the HSE launched “Better Backs”; a major initiative which they hoped would encourage more people to undertake manual handling training and thus reduce the number of back injuries sustained in the workplace. While the number of such injuries has been reduced, poor manual handling remains a serious issue.

Those working in certain industries are particularly at risk. Recycling Authentic A.J. Klein Jersey , land transport, sewage and refuse disposal, and furniture, food and beverage production account for the largest number of such injuries. The HSE statistics also break down the manual handling injuries into types, for example over the last five years 25% of injuries were caused when lifting or putting down loads Authentic Larry Warford Jersey , 16% when pushing or pulling loads and 11% were sprains and strains from body movement.

Good manual handling training should include good explanations of ALL factors which need to be taken into consideration when preparing for a lift and should clearly show how to lift properly. Explaining how the back works gives great background and clarifies what exactly is happening when the back is mistreated and makes SENSE of the training. Using various forms of communication (e.g. video, animation, illustration, engaging language) holds the attention and ensures better retention of knowledge. Regular interactivity ensures knowledge is more likely to be retained.

A toddler picking up a box from the floor will almost invariably use naturally good manual handling technique – bending at the knees rather than from the back – perhaps because their centre of gravity is low, but for whatever reason over the years that good technique is lost and needs to be re-learnt. Good preparation and learning a few simple steps to lift and carry is a great step in helping to avoid future back pain.

CANBERRA, June 12 (Xinhua) -- Australia's Prime Minster Tony Abbott launched another attack on "ugly," "noisy" wind turbines on Friday, prompting Labor's environment spokesman saying the matter had become "more than a joke."

"Tony Abbott is actively campaigning against an industry that employs thousands of Australians Authentic Andrus Peat Jersey , attracts billions in investment and reduces Australia's carbon pollution," Labor's environment spokesman Mark Butler told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Friday. "No other world leader would show such recklessness towards one of their own industries."

After describing wind turbines as "visually awful" on Thursday, Abbott said on Friday his government's decision to reduce the Renewable Energy Target had prevented "an explosion of these things right around our country."

When asked if he had ever visited a turbine, Abbott recounted a cycling excursion on Western Australia's Rottnest Island, which built a turbine in 2004 with a subsidy from the Howard government Authentic Sheldon Rankins Jersey , of which Abbott was a minister.

"Up close, they're ugly, they're noisy and they may have all sorts of other impacts which I will leave to the scientists to study, and that's why I think it's right and proper that state governments should have increased the distance from habitations that these installations now need to keep," Abbott told reporters in Canberra.

"Frankly Authentic Trey Hendrickson Jersey , it's right and proper that we have reduced the Renewable Energy Target because, as things stood, there was going to be an explosion of these things right around our country.

"There will still be some growth, but it will be much less than it would otherwise have been thanks to measures that this government has taken."

Treasurer Joe Hockey last year described wind turbines as " utterly offensive."

The Renewable Energy Target was reduced in May to 33,000 gigawatt hours after a decline in electricity use in Australia meant the original target based on 20 percent of 2020 levels had increased to 26 percent.

Rottnest Island's sole turbine produces 40 percent of the island's electricity needs Authentic Alex Anzalone Jersey , saving 385,000 U.S. dollars in fuel costs and the emission of 1,100 tonnes of greenhouse gas each year.

WASHINGTON - A German defense official under investigation for alleged spying was in contact with a US State Department officer rather than American intelligence agencies, raising questions about whether any espionage occurred, US officials familiar with the case told Reuters on Friday.

The officials Authentic Marcus Williams Jersey , who are knowledgeable about the details of the case, said the US government believes the relationship between the German defense official and his State Department contact was a friendship.

If that is borne out by the on-going German investigation, it could help cool a crisis in US-German security cooperation that has see.
