Here is a reminder to our fantastic membership that very soon the FIRST digital column will be available to you all. Column is National Back Exchange's quarterly journal and (as far as I know!) the only journal dedicated to people manual handling in the UK. You will be emailed a link to the new microsite dedicated to column very soon. There you will find news, and articles relevant to Manual Handling Advisers.The new style journal will be available as a flipbook and also to download as a pdf, so that you can read it anytime, anywhere. Members will be able to access and search past product reviews, and column articles. 

At launch there will be two years of product reviews available and six years of columns. Ever been stuck to remember when a particular article was published? This will be a really valuable and searchable resource for everyone. In a few days we will give you some sneak previews to the content. Hope you enjoy the new style column and the new microsite. 

The column team always welcomes members' contributions from short case studies to full research articles. Especially in these times, it is good to share our experiences and learning to support each other. Or if would like to be a peer reviewer, proof reader or assist with product reviews contact me at Looking forward to introducing you to column digital very soon.
