Manual Handling Training

Book Now 01563 573 785

What is it?

The manual handling of loads and materials that if not performed correctly increases the risk of serious injury. It involves the human body lifting, pushing, pulling, lowering, emptying and carrying.

The serious bit

Poor manual handling, across all types of working environments is the cause of over a third of workplace injuries which, as well as others can lead to disorders such as repetitive strain injury and musculoskeletal disorders (MDS’s).

The legal bit

All work that involves lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying is regulated by the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992) and  requires you to take into account;

  • Individual capability
  • The nature of the load
  • Environmental conditions
  • Training
  • Work organisation

The courses

Training options range from generic Manual Handling Awareness to more bespoke courses for activity that is higher risk or specialised.  Speak to a Training First adviser today to learn more about the choice of standard and tailor-made options we provide.
