Manual Handling in the Workplace

This online Manual Handling training course provides learners with the knowledge they need in order to reduce the chance of incurring an injury whilst manually handling loads in their work environment.

Manual handling regulations are in place to safeguard the health and safety of workers, and it’s vital that employers undertake manual handling training to educate themselves about their responsibilities.

Employers are required by law to take reasonable steps to safeguard the health and safety of all employees, one of which is increasing awareness about the hazards related to manual handling, and outlining what can be done to minimise risk. Health and Safety Executive data shows that failure to follow recommended manual handling techniques is one of the main factors behind musculoskeletal disorders among UK workers. Some 159,000 new cases of these conditions were recorded in 2016-17 alone.

What’s more, back injuries are the number one reason for workplace absences, and one-third of all injuries requiring three or more days off from work are caused by manual handling incidents. This can be extremely costly for businesses in terms of lost productivity.

As a result, it is vital that employers understand manual handling risks and know how to educate their staff about them in order to protect their health and safety at work.
