Manual Handling

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 apply to a wide range of manual handling activities, including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying. The load may be either animate, such as a person or an animal, or inanimate, such as a box or a trolley. 

The Regulations are designed to prevent injury to your employees and require assessments to be carried out of manual handling activities and instruction provided to your employees in how to carry out manual handling safely.

We can provide:

  • manual handling training for your employees, tailored to the manual handling activities they need to carry out and their working environment;

  • manual handling assessor training so that assessments can be carried out in-house by your employees;

  • on-site assessments of complex manual handling issues.

All of our training can be delivered on site to reduce travelling, accommodation, abstraction and expenses costs. All trainees will receive a certificate detailing the training that they have received.
