||As their work involves manual labour, couriers may suffer from work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Under Hong Kong regulations, employers must assess occupational hazards and implement suitable protective measures. Employers must also take appropriate steps to prevent couriers from suffering heat stroke when working in hot weather. Aimed at persons working in manual delivery operations, this booklet explains good working practices in the form of a comic strip involving a dialogue between a male and female worker in this sector.
