Description

A thorough investigation of accidents at TVH - Group & Thermote Vanhalst, revealed that more than half of the accidents or injuries were related to the back, neck and/or shoulders. These injuries were mainly due to the way loads were transported and handled. Lifting was done in an ergonomically in appropriate manner. The policy statement of TVH states: "A healthy employee is a good worker." With this in mind TVH wanted a situation in which all employees work in a safe and healthy way.
