Tool Box Talk: Warm Up and Stretching

Practical training in warming-up, stretching and manual handling

Many work-related injuries can be avoided if workers physically prepare themselves before engaging in demanding activities. Warming up and stretching prior to undertaking work that involves physical exertion will reduce the risk of strains and sprains of the muscles and ligaments of the body.

That’s why CHG offer this ‘Tool Box Talk’ on warm up and stretching.

This training will provide participants with an understanding of work, health and safety fundamentals related to manual handling and manual task safety as well as practical strategies to prepare physically for work demands.  Depending on the duration you choose, participants will learn:

  • Summary of basic WH&S responsibilities
  • Summary of fundamentals of manual handling, manual task safety and the risk control hierarchy
  • Summary of personal responsibility requirements to be physically prepared for work demands
  • How to prevent sprains and strains through undertaking appropriate stretches and warm ups
  • How to improve core stability through simple exercises
  • How to prepare for the demands of work by warming up

All training is delivered by experienced professionals with practical knowledge across many types of workplaces. Training can be further structured to suit your industry, worksite and objectives.
