Automated Manual Handling Risk Assessments: a benefit or a distraction?

David Bick and Dr Steve Cowley

Join us for a webinar on Tuesday 23rd June 2020 at 3pm AEST 

About the webinar

Automation through motion sensors and machine learning enables the non-expert to complete manual handling risk assessments and doesn’t always require the assessor to be present. This clearly has cost and time-benefits for the practitioner.

Traditionally, manual handling risk assessment is undertaken by an expert ergonomist using a checklist. However, does automation improve the reliability, accuracy and speed of assessments or is technology a distraction?

Presented by David Bick of Joint Action Group, joined by expert Dr Stephen Cowley for the Q&A to follow.
