Manual Handling online training

Learning outcomes

We’ve made this crash course learning track to help you understand the very basic principles of how to assess manual handling procedures within your working environment. Manual handling means transporting or supporting a load by hand or bodily force.

Manual handling includes lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving loads.

Price from £25 per learner

Manual Handling risks can be found across many working environments and also include; awkward postures and previous or existing injuries.

Who requires manual handling training

Manual handling can be part of any job or any working task. There are no specific people directly who training should or shouldn’t be aimed at. Awareness of how to identify manual handling hazards and then how to assess the risks is vital for anyone who is at a reasonable risk of being exposed to lifting, pushing, supporting and transporting loads manually. 

Managers and supervisors have a responsibility to ensure that manual handling tasks are assessed correctly and being carried in the way that staff have been shown. Employees have a responsibility to ensure that they are conducting manual handling tasks in a safe and correct manner. 

This is why ensuring staff have manual handling awareness training that is specific to their working tasks and environment is essential in reducing the likelihood of muscular skeletal disorders (MSD’s). 

What the HSE say

“As an employer, you must protect your workers from the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling in the workplace. Manual handling means transporting or supporting a load by hand or bodily force. It includes lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving loads. A load can be an object, person or animal.”
