Implications of the EC Manual Handling of Loads Directive for nurse managers.

Abstract

The European Community has introduced new regulations designed to stop people being injured when moving loads at work. These rules came into effect on 1 January 1993. So far, however, many managers have done nothing about them. If nurses are injured, their employers may be liable to pay large sums in compensation. Managers must start to take these issues seriously.
