Manual Handling

Manual handling is the most frequent cause of over-seven-day injury in the workplace.

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.

Training your employees with our online system will go a long way to giving them greater awareness of the dangers that poor manual handling poses, as well as covering safe handling techniques, practical solutions to manual handling issues and the use of mechanical aids.
