Fit4Work Musculoskeletal Health Program

Tuesday, Jan 29, 2019

Introducing the Wine Industry Fit4Work Musculoskeletal Health Program.

The South Australian Wine Industry Association together with Pinnacle Workplace Consultants will be developing an online training and educational resource to address the most common and risky tasks and health issues for vineyard workers.

The project team will be consulting injury statistics and talking with the industry to determine which vineyard tasks and health issues would benefit from these online educational resources. Development of the resources will involve site visits and consultation with vineyard workers.

Workshops will be run in 4 regional areas in May & June to familiarise and train leadership staff onsite in how to use the resources as training tools for your vineyard workers. This will cover safe manual handling techniques, risk management strategies, and other health factors that contribute to worker health and wellbeing. An industry-wide survey will be circulated this month seeking your input.
