About this publication

"A Guide to Manual Order Picking" is a 16 page publication which outlines work practices that employers must comply with to meet WorkSafeƂ's expectations. The guide details what high risk work practices should be avoided and lower risk solutions (including equipment and layout alternatives and suggestions). Over 280 claims from manual handling through order picking injuries occur in Victoria each year, at a cost of $11.5 million which clearly shows that manual order picking is an injury black spot.
