Anyone who works in the hospitality industry knows that heavy lifting comes with the job. Whether it's a box of cleaning products, a box of fresh vegetables or a carton of milk, lifting heavy objects is a day-to-day task. But, with heavy objects comes the risk of injury - statistics show that 39% of workplace incidents stem from body stressing.
Working in a fast-paced workplace means that, sometimes, things can get overlooked. It can also mean that when help is needed, there might not be anybody available to ask. With the clock ticking and tasks needed to be done, this is when injuries can occur.
