Incorrect manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work, Manual Handling Operations Regulations state that no man should attempt to lift anything heavier than 25kg and a woman’s maximum limit is less at 16kg. These weights are quickly exceeded when large barrels, kegs and cases are required to be moved from floor to floor. The regulations state that wherever reasonably practicable, manual handling should be automated and the use of mechanical aids is encouraged. Responsible employers like Goose Island have introduced lifting equipment where suitable to ensure a safe operation, fulfilling their duty of care to their employees.
