Manual handling risks associated with the care, treatment and transportation of bariatric patients and clients in Australia

The project to address the following research questions:
> What are the OHS risks associated with manual handling of bariatric patients to which workers such as nurses, ambulance officers, fire fighters, and those in the funeral industry in Australia are exposed?
> What measures (e.g. plans, policies, processes and equipment, supported by adequate training) have been introduced in Australia to reduce or eliminate the risks?
> How effective are the above measures?
> Where might further intervention be required to control the risk in Australian workplaces?


The exploratory research project was completed in three parts; (i) literature review, (ii) focus groups and (iii) case studies.
