Manual handling can be defined as the use of bodily force to lift, carry or move objects, either with or without mechanical aids. Use of a manual pallet truck is therefore a manual handling activity. It is therefore a common workplace activity and no surprise that more than one third of all workplace injuries are the result of manual handling.

The Manual Handling Regulations were introduced to protect everyone’s health and wellbeing and to make the work environment a safer place. This course is based around the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, helping you to abide with the law.

This health and safety training course focusses on how to prevent an injury arising from manual handling. It is designed to give you and your workforce the right skills and practical techniques to lift and/or carry objects safely.

Musculoskeletal disorders such as damage to a person’s spine and back can have irreversible effects which may impact the injured person for the rest of their life. For this reason, we highly recommend this course, not only to abide by legislation, but to also look after the long-term health and wellbeing of your entire workforce.

This course will cover:
• Why the concern over manual handling?
• Legislation in place today
• Roles and responsibilities
• Other supporting regulations
• HSE guidelines
• Understanding the spine
• Safe manual handling techniques
• And much more…
