This book is for all employers in the food and drink industries whose work might be
putting their employees' muscles and joints at risk of damage. It shows simple and
cost-effective ways of reducing both acute and chronic injuries – the solutions
described were successful answers to actual problems experienced by companies.
The case studies cover raw materials handling, production, packing into containers,
stacking/moving containers, handling equipment and off-site delivery. The introduction in this new edition has been revised but the case studies remain unchanged.
