What Is Manual Handling?
Manual handling refers to the physical act of transporting or supporting a load using human effort. This includes using your hands or other body parts to lift, lower, push, pull, carry, move, hold, support, restrain, or set down the load. Regardless of your occupation, manual handling tasks like lifting, carrying, pushing, or pulling are a common part of work.
Examples of daily manual handling include:
- Pushing a trolley
- Unloading a car
- Stacking shelves
- Lifting a child
What Does The Manual Handling Course Cover?
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require employers to ensure all employees are trained in manual handling and can carry it out safely. With more than a third of accidents in the UK being attributed to poor manual handling, it is essential that workers are appropriately trained and are aware of the dangers before carrying out tasks that require any lifting, pulling, pushing, carrying etc.
Our manual handling course online provides all the information needed in order for your organisation to be compliant with regulations and for workers to be at less risk of injury. This course explores the risk of injury associated with manual handling, how to undergo a risk assessment, and how to put appropriate safety measures in place.
Please note: This e-learning course only provides awareness education. Additional face-to-face training would be needed in order to complete the all-around skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.
