Manual Handling Training

Course Content

Manual handling relates to the moving of items either by lifting, lowering, carrying, pushing or pulling. The weight of the item is an important factor, but many other factors can create a risk of injury, for example the number of times you have to pick up or carry an item, the distance you are carrying it, where you are picking it up from or putting it down (picking it up from the floor, putting it on a shelf above shoulder level) and any twisting, bending, stretching or other awkward posture you may adopt while doing a task.
The Manual Handling training course will look at the employers and employee’s responsibilities under The Manual Handling Regulations 1992 (as amended 2002) and covers the following:
  • Appropriate systems of work for the individual’s tasks and environment
  • How to carry out safe manual handling including good handling technique
  • Manual handling risk factors and how injuries can occur
  • Use of mechanical aids
