Luggage Handling

Luggage Handling

One of the most common causes of injury (and subsequent personal injury claim) in the coach industry is drivers handling luggage. Sprains, stains, pulled muscles and more serious injuries, such as fractures and hernias, can be caused by loading heavy or awkward items of passengers’ luggage.

Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that drivers are adequately trained under basic health& safety legislation and also specific manual handling regulations. Failure to have carried out training (with a signed training record) can lead to both expensive settlements in claims from employees and possible prosecution by the HSE.

Minimise Your Risk can provide PDF icon cost-effective training using specialised training materials such as our luggage handling booklet.
