Understanding common law: Lifting and transfer injuries

WorkCover Queensland has developed a series of webinars on accidents, injury and investigations in relation to common law claims.

The first in the series, entitled 'Lifting injuries', covers manual handling claims which are common across all industries.

This webinar identifies the common reasons why claims succeed, sometimes despite proper risk assessments and training.

The webinar covers:

  • risk assessments
  • scenarios departing from risk assessments
  • on premises examples
  • in the field examples.

Session 1 was presented by Cameron Seymour, Partner from Mullins Lawyers and accredited specialist in personal injuries law by the Queensland Law Society.
