DIGGING A DITCH – SOME TIPS TO AVOID MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURY

With our extensive work in the Utilities sector, we repeatedly see the same high risk movements contributing to musculoskeletal injury risk – one of the most common being “shovelling” or “digging”. Digging is a common task for utility workers which is why it is important that your employees have the correct knowledge to reduce their risk of injury.

In this article, we explore a few simple changes that will dramatically reduce the musculoskeletal risk profile of the task, which in turn has a direct impact on reduced injury rates across your employees.

Musculoskeletal injuries are not always associated with a single event but more often, can occur through cumulative effects over time. Maintaining your digging posture today will help avoid an injury in the future.

"The Emergency Response Unit's goal is to reach the pinnacle of safety; the 'ViSafe' study has proven to be a practical and essential tool to assess work activities, deciding on the purchase of/or developing plant and equipment in the future. 'ViSafe' has proven to be a fundamental step in our workplace safety."

Sean Watters, Emergency Response Unit Manager at Transport For London

"You tell them in the classroom, these are the techniques you should be using. Tip from the hip, keep your back straight, bend at the knees. The myVisafe technology allowed them to actually see that, in the red zone versus the green zone while they were performing the tasks out there in the factory."

Rowena Terlingen, HSE Manager at VISY

"As the onsite team for Stone Masonry within Laing O'Rourke, we found the use of wearable technology incredibly interesting. It was very good to see the link between our MSD's and everyday work activities. The DorsaVi team came back to site and ran a workshop in which our operatives and senior management were presented with the risk profile for our Stoney Masonry work. This was valuable and gave us positive outcomes that will ultimately enable us to become better at what we do!"

Callum McConnachie, Section Manager at Laing O'Rourke
