G’day mates! Let’s talk hazardous manual tasks. You know, the kind that makes you wish for a cold one at the end of a long day. It’s a part of the tradie life, but who says it has to be a pain? Whether you’re wrestling pipes or juggling bricks, we’re here to help you manage these tasks without breaking a sweat—or your back.

What’s The Big Deal?

Hazardous manual tasks are everywhere. They’re the lifting, pushing, pulling, and bending that come with the territory. And according to Safe Work Australia, musculoskeletal disorders from these tasks are a leading cause of worker discomfort and compensation claims. Not the sort of accolades we’re after, right?

The Top 5 Hazardous Tasks You’re Probably Doing

  • The Mighty Lift: That moment when you think lifting heavy is impressive—until your back disagrees.
  • The Tight-Space Shimmy: Squeezing into places your body wasn’t meant to fit. Fun? Hardly.
  • The Push-Pull Marathon: It’s a long-haul effort that feels more like a workout than work.
  • The Monotonous Move: Repeat the same action enough, and your body starts to protest.
  • The Forceful Finagle: Applying force might make you feel strong, but it can lead to injury.
