Manual Handling Training
Approved by IIRSM and CPD. Manual handling covers a wide range of activities. The nature of the load itself doesn't matter if you have to use your muscles, then it's manual handling and, well, you're in danger.
Manual handling, or to be accurate, incorrect manual handling, is one of the most common causes of injury at work. To try and combat manual handling problems, the Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced.
The Regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers. They give a general requirement that employees must be trained to manually handle correctly including the use of any equipment their employer provides to handle loads safely.
