Manual handling courses

Expert manual handling training courses delivered by safety experts

Why is manual handling training important?

It’s estimated that 21% of all non-fatal workplace injuries are attributable to manual handling injuries and that a third of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are also caused through manual handling activities. Our manual handling training courses are designed to help minimise the incidence of MSDs, reduce the risk of injury to your employees and increase productivity through absence avoidance.

Is manual handling a legal requirement?

As an employer, you must protect your workers from the risk of injury associated with hazardous manual handling. Although manual handling training is not mandatory for all employees, the law sets out how employers must deal with the risks associated with manual handling through:

  • Avoiding hazardous manual handling, so far as is reasonably practicable
  • Assessing the risk of injury from any hazardous manual handling operations that cannot be avoided
  • Reducing the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling to as low as reasonably practicable
