About the Course

This Manual Handling Training Course provides a comprehensive overview of manual handling procedures. The course material will educate both individuals and organisations on the importance of manual handling practices and risks associated with manual handling activities. You will learn how to undertake a thorough risk assessment and ensure that suitable control measures are in place.

After studying this course, learners will obtain the necessary knowledge to reduce and where possible eliminate risk of injury in the workplace as a result of routine manual handling activities.

Employers are required by law to take reasonable steps to safeguard the health and safety of all employees. Importantly, all employers must deliver training to increase awareness of the hazards associated with manual handling and equip employees with the knowledge to reduce associated risks.

Do You Comply with The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992?

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require employers to ensure that all employees are trained and competent in manual handling. It is the employer’s duty to avoid manual handling as far as is reasonably practicable and, if this cannot be done, the employer must take steps to reduce the risk of injury.

Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to provide their employees with adequate health and safety information and training.

This Manual Handling Training Course ensures employers comply with these Regulations by providing appropriate knowledge of the risks and safety measures associated with manual handling tasks.

Who should take this course?

This Manual Handling Awareness Course is suitable for all employees, from junior staff to supervisors. Anyone who is required to carry out manual handling tasks such as the transportation of items or heavy lifting will benefit.

Risk Assessments – Risk Assessments aim to identify risks in the workplace.

Manual Handling Aids and Techniques – This module explore the correct techniques for lifting, moving and handling large or heavy items in the workplace. You will also learn best practice for undertaking tasks which involve these activities while reducing the risk to yourself and others.
