What is included in manual handling training?

  • How to avoid manual handling: It is not shirking your duty to want to avoid manual handling if at all possible. In many instances, there is machinery available to take the load. By reducing the amount of manual handling in the workplace, the risk of injury diminishes exponentially.
  • How to risk assess a manual handling task: From gauging the weight and bulk of the item, to assessing the distance and terrain over which it needs to be carried, including potential obstacles, all of these form part of a manual handling risk assessment.
  • Knowing the common injuries and how to avoid them: Trainees will be taught about the most common injuries connected with manual handling, and how best to avoid them. Back injuries are the classic example, and learners are taught how to look after themselves while lifting.
