Project Description

This project will produce a report outlining results of a trial of a practical risk control tool and recommendations for ways in which WorkSafe can influence changes to policy and practice within all Victorian hospitals. Accompanying this report will be a set of practical tools and guidelines that hospitals can use to review and revise their risk controls, in order to prevent future patient handling injuries.
