Enquire now for pricing information.
Manual handling covers a wide variety of tasks, including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling and carrying. When any of these tasks are not carried out properly, then there is a risk of injury. More than a third of all reported injuries that result in someone being off work for more than three days are caused by manual handling. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended 2002) require employers to conduct risk assessments of manual handling activities that they undertake and to provide appropriate training for their employees.
This course will help employers meet this latter requirement, especially as its practical element is always centred on the actual manual handling that employees undertake, rather than the ‘box in the middle of the room’ scenario.
- The legal requirements and the duties of the employer and employee.
- The harm that poor manual handling causes.

- Safe handling techniques.
- The relevant personal protective equipment requirements.
- The issue of team lifts.
- Dynamic risk assessment.
