The webinar will discuss the physical demands placed on service technicians, and in particular, the impact experience has when climbing ladders. Presenters will: introduce available industry good practice guidance including those regarding working at heights and manual handling (including torque and tensioning); discuss current research regarding the most physically demanding aspects of working as a service technician; and provide evidence that climbing experience can limit the exposure to poor technique and ultimately reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders.
