Home care musculoskeletal injury prevention manual and program: Research and Workplace Innovation Program

Research and Workplace Innovation Program project by Charlene Robert, Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority

The Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority (RHA) Home Care Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention (MSI) manual and program were developed to prevent work-related musculoskeletal injuries and near misses related to client handling practices.

The content of this manual follows Manitoba legislation outlining best practice for client handling, risks of musculoskeletal injuries and duties of employers and employees. The manual applies the requirements outlined by the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba and SAFE Work Manitoba. This manual ensures consistency among client handling practices and helps to prevent work injuries.
