A morning seminar on overcoming risks in manual handling in the plastics industry will be held at Rapra Technology, Europe's leading plastics and rubber test house and technical consultancy, on Thursday July 21 at Rapra's Shawbury headquarters, near Shrewsbury.

The July 21 event is being organised by leading associations in the plastics sector together with the Health and Safety Executive. The morning's activity will introduce companies how to use the MAC tool, a new diagnostic tool (Manual Handling Assessment Chart) that has been developed and designed by the HSE. Initial training will be given in MAC assessments and follow-up mentoring and support will also be provided to companies that attend the event.

Rapra's Martin Woodley says that 'over one third of serious injuries in the plastics industry occur during a handling activity. This seminar will help companies identify which jobs in the workplace create the highest risk and will also introduce delegates to low cost analysis of those situations and solutions that can reduce or eliminate those risks.'

Participating organisations in the July 21 event include the BPF, PIFA, PMMDA, Rapra, Faraday Plastics, and Polymer Training.
