Our online manual handling training course is a great way to train your staff on how to lift safely in accordance with the 1992 regulations.
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 define it as “any transporting or supporting of a load (including the lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving thereof) by hand or by bodily force”
Whenever an employee is required to move heavy items manually there is a risk so the right information and training is required to avoid unnecessary injuries.
Training your employees with our online system will go a long way to giving them a greater awareness of the dangers that poor manual handling poses.
The course also goes into more detail on the regulations as well as covering safe handling techniques, practical solutions to manual handling issues and the use of mechanical aids.

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.
