The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require employers to ensure that all employees are trained and competent in manual handling. It is the employer’s duty to avoid manual handling as far as is reasonably practicable and, if this cannot be done, the employer must take steps to reduce the risk of injury.
Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and regulations 10 and 13 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training. This should be supplemented as necessary with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention, as part of the steps to reduce risk required by the regulations.
This Manual Handling Training Course ensures employers comply with these Regulations by providing appropriate knowledge of the risks and safety measures associated with manual handling tasks.
